Muir Woods Image Gallery
Muir Woods National Monument protects one of the only stands of old-growth Coast Redwoods left in the Bay Area. President Theodore Roosevelt declared it a national monument in 1908 and it was subsequently named after the influential naturalist John Muir. In this gallery, explore historic and contemporary images of visitors and the majestic natural surroundings, including the nearby Mount Tamalpais area and Muir Beach.
