Accessing Our Site
Here at John Muir NHS we are committed to accessibility. Please contact us if you have any great ideas!The visitor center offers accessible restrooms and a captioned film. An easy access path offers a less steep route for visitors to reach the Strentzel-Muir house. For visitors who are unable to walk to the house, a ranger will gladly provide transportation via a golf cart. A wheelchair lift allows access to the home's first floor. The wheelchair lift has a 500-lb combined weight limit for each person and his or her wheelchair. Please contact the park if you have any questions or need additional information. A non-motorized wheelchair is available for use on a first-come, first-served basis. Motorized scooters are not permitted in the Strentzel-Muir house or the Martinez Adobe due to the hazards of uneven surfaces and to protect the integrity of these historic buildings. The first floor of the Martinez Adobe and Juan Bautista De Anza National Historic Trail exhibit is also accessible from the south side. ADA approved picnic tables are available as well.
John Muir National Historic Site is for pedestrians only; no bicycles or motor vehicles are allowed in the park. Mount Wanda is accessible for pedestrians, mountain bikers and horses. The single track nature trail is for pedestrians only. Parking for Mount Wanda is at the Cal-Trans Park and Ride lot at the corner of Franklin Canyon Rd. and Alhambra Ave.
One of John Muir's great-grandchildren, Michael Muir, continues in kind with a dedication to getting ALL humans into the outdoors. Please click on the following link for: Access Adventure
