Enjoy the loveliest season in the Bay Area on a moderate/strenuous, 3 miles (round-trip) walk from Muir Woods and back. We'll ascend above the ancient coast redwood rainforest via the Ben Johnson Trail, and walk along the Deer Park Fire Road through groves of Douglas fir. At the top of the Dipsea Ridge, we'll take in spectacular ocean views and listen for the haunting calls of birds across the coastal shrub land. Wear good hiking shoes, hat, and sunscreen. Bring water & a snack. Meet at the Visitor Center. Entry fees apply. Reservations required; phone 388-2596.
