A New Way to Plan Your Muir Woods Visit

To improve your experience and better protect the park, the National Park Service is launching a parking and shuttle reservation system.


No Cell Phone Service

Please enjoy (and remember to plan ahead for) no cell phone service in Muir Woods! Uber cannot reliably pick you up here. If you are taking a taxi service to the park, ask the driver to return to pick you up as you are not able to make a phone call or use internet on your phone to call a taxi otherwise.

Address: 1 Muir Woods Rd, Mill Valley, CA 94941
