MUIR WOODS Programs

Open every day, including holidays, between 8 AM and sunset. Muir Beach and Muir Beach Overlook are open from 9 AM to one hour after sunset. All programs meet at the Visitor Center and entrance fee applies unless otherwise indicated.

Phone the Muir Woods Hotline at 388-2595 for program information and updates on hours, seasonal news, trail conditions and program details. Also, follow us on Twitter @MuirWoodsNPS.

Ongoing Daily Programs
Rangers and volunteers present 15-minute talks and guided one-hour tours when staffing permits. Check the program board at the park entrance for times and locations of talks and tours. No reservations necessary.

Besides taking in a talk or tour, there are other ways to enhance your experience at the park. Muir Woods offers two self-guided programs that may be purchased for $1 each at the Visitor Center or the self-serve map box at Bridge 2. The Nature Trail Self-Guide and Watershed Hiking map takes you on a redwood ecology walk on the Main Trail from Bridge 2 through Cathedral Grove. Follow the numbered (1-10) posts that correspond with the numbered sections in the map.

The Muir Woods Historic Walking Tour map takes you from the Visitor Center to Bridge 4 and back. There are no numbered posts to follow. The historic walking tour highlights the ancient redwoods, scenic trails, gathering places, rustic structures, and memorials that weave stories of people and nature.

Linger at the beautiful wayside signs throughout the park and learn about redwood ecology and cultural history of Muir Woods. Families with children enjoy participating in the Junior Ranger or Redwood Discovery: Muir Woods Quest programs. See the For Kids section of this web site.
