Dipsea Foot Bridge at the Annex Lot is BACK!

National Park Service
Redwood forests are quiet and deeply shaded places in which wildlife may seem rare or absent entirely. It's easy to remain unseen in this dense forest. Then, too, many of the forest creatures are nocturnal. Others live high in the forest canopy or in the soil or deep duff on the forest floor. In fact, redwood forests are surprisingly lively places. Visit some of our animal links below or check out the Wildlife Checklist to learn more about these elusive forest creatures...

Every year Convergent Ladybugs migrate to Muir Woods from California’s central valley seeking the cool refuge of the redwood forest. You can see them resting in large clumps on plants and fence posts.
