While At The park

Use our self guided tour book to identify what you're looking at throughout the house and grounds. You may purchase one in the Visitor Center for $1.00, or you may use a loan copy.

Jr. Ranger books are free in the Visitor Center and are recommended for 8-12 year olds, but hey, don't let that stop you!

There are many places to picnic on site. No fires or grills are allowed in the park.

In summertime, look for boxes of fresh picked fruit throughout the site!

The Vincente Martinez adobe is located here at John Muir NHS. Vincente had a famous father. His name was Ygnacio Martinez. Not only is the town of Martinez named for him, he was the first commandant of the Presidio in San Francisco, and he was also what we would call the 3rd mayor of that city.
