Muir Woods is excellent for the longer hikes and the views from the top are awesome. I recommend the shorter hikes for people who come unprepared for the hike or may have limits. A slow walk through Cathedral Grove has a very calming effect. l

1-800-410-2419 is the phone number to call. This can be found on the Muir Woods web site. Takes a bit of digging to find it. Don't know why it isn't in the front. The person answering the phone can help you. Have a great visit.
