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 at 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.
