Plan Your Visit

Explore the majestic redwood forest

Muir Woods is open 365 days a year, and no reservations are required to visit.

Please enjoy (and remember to plan ahead for) no cell phone service in Muir Woods! If you are using a taxi service, plan ahead to have them pick you up when you are done as you aren't able to use your phone to call or reserve a car from the park.

Muir Woods is extremely popular and parking is extremely limited. Carpool, arrive early (between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.) or late (one to two hours prior to closing) and consider visiting on a weekday.

Expect short road delays along Muir Woods Road and Frank Valley Road for road improvements January - March 2016. Please drive carefully.
