Gorgeous & Romantic Muir Woods – Breath taking scenery! My boyfriend took me there this past weekend and during the one hour loop walk he got down on one knee and proposed! The trees are mind blowing and the smell of the redwoods is incomparable! Perfect romantic setting for couples and great information on history of park/trees/ and america! I HIGHLY recommend this park! B-E-A- UTIFUL!
Home to some of the oldest trees in the United States. – The Background
Named for famous conservationist John Muir, these woods are where delegates from all over the world met in the spring of 1945 to draft and sign the Charter of the United Nations. President Franklin D. Roosevelt died shortly before he was to have opened the United Nations Conference, and the delegates held a commemorative ceremony in tribute to his memory in Muir Woods' Cathedral Grove, where a dedication plaque stands in his honor.
Not far from the city, lovers of the outdoors can connect with ancient times by merely standing beneath the majestic redwoods. Many of the trails are mild enough for the greenhorn hikers among us, while others challenge the more adventurous.
Must for nature lovers, beautiful trails and picture oppts! – Visited from NJ for a week, and drove a few minutes to see some Redwood trees. Only $3, good for kids, or romantic stroll. Don't miss it, unless you want to drive 18 hours from SF to Redwood City, CA where there are other Redwoods!
Beautiful hiking trails – Muir Woods is one of my favorite places to hike! The redwood trees are amazing.
Among the Giants – Muir Woods is like a cathedral constructed of giant redwoods. It is serene and inspiring. On a hot, Marin County day, the coolness is soothing and welcome. Rangers are available for interpretation. The creeks are full of interesting forest life. A unique and wonderful place.
so close but it takes you so far away – Muir Words has gigantic redwoods and its so close when most of us think of the redwoods we think of having that long drive up to avenue of the giants in humbolt. Muir woods is a local friendly place where the drive is relaxing but not overwhelmingly long. it has the grandure and aweinspiring site of the trees in humbolt but its right here in our back yard if you want to get back to nature and see what california was like before we all got here then visit muir woods . its so close but it takes your mind so far away
Muir Woods, a definite must stop – The trails are very relaxing while the river runs through the forest and the trees are amazing themselves. Very easy trail to walk on and is something not to miss when in SF. I have been to numerous places including Monterey, Yosemite, ect. and I would include this in your travels based on all the places I have been.
