Muir Woods’ main trail begins at the visitor center and follows Redwood Creek on both sides of the stream. Large redwood trees line this trail from the very beginning. Though a level, easy stroll, the walk can be shortened by crossing at the second or third bridge to return. The path consists of firm surfaces, a mixture of wooden boardwalk, asphalt paving, and packed native soil.
