Muir Woods has a rich and varied history, from its use by the Coast Miwok people, to its early days of tourism and the Mount Tamalpais Mill Valley Scenic Railway, to an era of conservation, to modern preservation. In each era, the forest has been...more

We took a tour bus as there were zero parking reservations available as many as 3 months out (for a weekday trip). It was great. The tour bus dropped us in Sausalito after the Muir Woods and we rode a ferry back. Great trip. Wish...More
Very nice walk this time of year. We spend over 2 hrs at the park.
Be sure to go reserve a parking lot in advance from the website if you drive there. Otherwise you will end up walking a few miles to the entrance.
Incredibly beautiful woods. We spent ~3 hours hiking up Ben Johnson trail and back via the Dipsea. Stopped a lot to take pictures and also had a lunch break. Tree talk is really interesting, so make sure to be around to hear one of those...More
Now that parking has to be reserved in advance, Muir Woods is back to being a quiet place to walk & enjoy the beauty of the National Park. Redwood trees provide an atmosphere to delight during any kind of weather.

Greetings Luke C.,
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.
I'm not sure what time the ticket booth opens. Yes, you could probably go in without paying. The problem is parking. The ONLY place there is to park belongs to the facility. And you MUST have a reservation. Good luck.
