Muir Woods

The second day of our SFO trip started with the tour of the Muir Woods.
Muir Woods National Monument is a U.S. national park and a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Muir Woods are old  Redwood forests, and such forests grew throughout the United States about millions of years ago. But with the advent of the logging industry most of these forests were destroyed. This forest is named after John Muir, a naturalist whose efforts and campaigns helped save and preserve this forest.

Tips while visiting Muir Woods:
  • Try to reach as early as possible, in order to get a good parking spot. Or else you might have to wait for hours to even get one.
  • Wear your most comfortable shoes, as there's a lot of walking involved.
  • The forest is dense and it rains quite often here, so the place gets muddy most of the times. If possible carry a light windcheater/umbrella.
  • As you enter deep into the forests, it gets cold as well, so carrying  jacket wouldn't hurt.
  • This is a beautiful place, so be ready with your cameras, but do respect the privacy of the birds here.
We spent only a couple of hours here, but if you are a nature lover and have the time I would recommend you spend at least half a day here, if not more. Scroll down for pictures.
