The Basics

At the park entrance are a gift shop, cafe, and visitors center—follow the raised boardwalk from there, and you'll find yourself at the crossroads of the park's easy and popular hiking trails. Most tours of Muir Woods depart from San Francisco and last between four hours and eight hours, depending on the activities included. Because Muir Woods is north of San Francisco, just across the Golden Gate Bridge, many tours combine a visit here with a Sausalito tour, a San Francisco city tour, a bay cruise, a trip to Alcatraz, or a half- or full-day visit to Napa Valley wine country.

Muir Woods Expedition Tour of Coastal Redwoods
Our tour guide was awesome. He was very personable - he had a lot of great information. The tour itself was also excellent. The scent of the trees once you arrive at Muir Woods was amazing - I never expected that. The beauty of it all was just spectacular! Our visit to Sausalito was fun too - great little shops. Highly recommend this tour!!!

Best Day in San Francisco with Muir Woods
Neat way to see neighborhoods . Nice small group of tourists so our trip was very personalized. Brendan was great about stopping in photo spots and taking tons of pictures! Lunch in Sausalito was wonderful. But Muir Woods was by far the best part of the day. Truly an amazing experience seeing the Redwoods. Plenty of time to explore there. Highly recommend this trip!

Muir Woods and Sausalito Half Day Tour (Optional Sausalito Ferry Ticket)
The tour took necessary COVID precautions. Guests were required to wear their masks at all times, they provided hand sanitizer and the tour was at half capacity. Since Muir Woods requires reservations, we started the tour at 7:15 AM. I liked this because we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. The tour guide was very knowledgable and patient when we all wanted to take pictures. I would recommend this tour!

Muir Woods and Sausalito Half Day Tour (Optional Sausalito Ferry Ticket)
Very smooth and convenient trip. Our tour guide was a fantastic storyteller with a great sense of humor. We learned a lot along the way, and Muir Woods was fantastic! Cool and serene experience to be among the redwoods. I felt like the stop in Sausalito could have been a tad longer, but we still had enough time to check out downtown and grab a bite.

Bike the Golden Gate Bridge and Shuttle Tour to Muir Woods
This was a great experience for my daughter (teen) and I. It takes a bit of getting used to the bike and the bike ‘rules’ and paths but it was an awesome adventure. Muir Woods was really nice, too. We made the full hike to bridge 4 with slow pace in the time allotted.

Small-Group Tour: San Francisco City Tour Including Muir Woods and Sausalito
I’m so glad I picked this tour!! I had a day to myself and I got to see every part of San Francisco, Muir Woods and saucelito. Our tour guide was beyond knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we all had a wonderful day. This is one of the best tours I’ve ever been on. I went by myself while my sister was working and I made friends with the people on my tour.

Small Group Half Day Muir Woods and Sausalito Morning Tour
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour is good if you want make a quick visit to Muir Woods and Sausalito (about 4 hours total) otherwise If you want to spend more time in the woods this isn’t the right tour for you. Overall it was a good experience. The good thing you will have more time to enjoy San Francisco the rest of the day !! OMG We Love San Francisco. Thank you for the amazing tour !!!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • If you're not prepared to reserve a shuttle or parking spot in advance (availability is extremely limited), book a bus tour or a private tour that includes San Francisco hotel pickup and roundtrip transportation.

  • Walking tours and bike tours are among the most popular ways to see the area.

  • The park has many accessible features, with boardwalk platforms throughout.

  • Even the easiest hikes can stir up an appetite—stave off the hunger by booking a tour that offers a gourmet lunch in Sonoma County.

How To Get to Muir Woods

Muir Woods is located just 12 miles (19 km) north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, making it an easy day trip from the city. It's possible to arrive by public transit, but the easiest way is by organized tour. If coming by car, drive north on Highway 101 and continue north on a short drive along Highway 1 (Shoreline Highway). Then take the Panoramic Highway, a right-hand fork. Continue about one mile (1.5 km) to Four Corners, where you'll turn left onto Muir Woods Road.

When to Get There

Muir Woods is open from 8am to sunset during summer and closes at 5pm in winter. The site can become quite crowded, especially on weekends, so try to come midweek, early in the morning, or late in the afternoon to beat the crowds. Even at busy times, a short hike will get you out of the densest crowds and onto trails with giant redwoods and stunning vistas.
