Highlights

Experience the wonder of one of California’s oldest redwood groves on our new Muir Woods Tour. Hop on to take a scenic drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, and adventure into Muir Woods National Forest.

Muir Woods National Forest

Discover the tallest trees on planet earth.

Stroll through the walking trails in tranquil Muir Woods to see California's coastal redwoods, the tallest living things on earth. Muir Woods is one of the last remaining stands of old-growth coastal redwood forest, sustained by temperate marine fog. You'll see redwoods that are over 800 years old, having grown from tiny seeds to heights of up to 258 feet (79 m).
