If you want to see Muir Wood,s minus the driving and parking nightmares associated with it, you can opt for a tour. Many large commercial tour operators offer trips to Muir Woods. They pick you up from a designated meeting point and then (most) limit you to about 90 minutes actually walking in Muir Woods. Tom Martell offers a tour where he takes very small groups to Muir Woods. He picks you up at your hotel early in the morning. You drive across the Golden Gate arriving at Muir Woods when it is still quiet. On the way Tom will give an overview of the preserve and the trees themselves. If it is raining, as it was on the day we went, he has umbrellas. If you are hungry he has some snacks. You get a full 2 hours to walk and, if time permits, he may take you to nearby Muir Beach. He drops you in Sausalito where you can return to San Francisco (either to the Ferry Building or Fisherman's Wharf). Such a nice, stress-free way to experience the magic of the Muir redwoods.
