How do I get there?
Road update 3/28/17: Muir Woods National Monument is open and accessible to all vehicles 17ft in length and under. The main route to Muir Woods (Panoramic Highway and Muir Woods Rd.) is currently open.
Other storm-related road closures are affecting the greater Muir Woods area. Due to roadwork, Highway 1 is closed between Panoramic Highway to Muir Beach, and from Slide Ranch to Stinson Beach. Vehicles traveling on Muir Woods Rd. (which is open) may not exceed 17 ft in length or 96 inches in width. For updates on Hwy 1 visit the CalTrans website.
Best Option: In the summer, ride the Muir Woods Shuttle. Shuttles will be running again starting in May. (This is subject to change due to ongoing roadwork in the area.) Please visit Marin Transit for schedules. The shuttle does not run this time of year.
Next Best Option: Local tour companies bring groups to Muir Woods from San Francisco and Sausalito on a daily basis.
Third Option: You may drive your own vehicle, but be aware the parking is limited and fills up quickly. If you choose to drive, we recommend entering "1 Muir Woods Rd., Mill Valley CA" into your GPS instead of searching for "Muir Woods." Please note: there are no parking spaces for RVs or other oversized personal vehicles.
Alternate (adventurous!) Options: Take a combination of public transit and a little hiking - be sure to update the day and time of your visit on that website.
