This is a great place for walking or hiking in the Redwood Forest. There are beautifl things to see with plenty of wonderful scenery on every trail. The air smells so good there.

If you like walking in the woods amongst giant redwoods, this is the place to go. Just over an hour from the south bay you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Wear good walking shoes.

Twisting, winding roads end up at the parking lot of Muir Woods which is where the locals go to spend their week-ends. Giant redwood trees surround you as you walk through the paths -- and you can choose how long you want to stay. There is a $3 per person entry fee and parking is free. Note: on the week-ends you could find yourself parking 2 miles down the road as the lots fill up quickly. Bring your hiking shoes and bottles of water and plan to spend the day.

PROS: Beautiful trees and serenity for walking or hiking
CONS: Need more parking space on the week-ends

Muir Woods is a really impressive government owned forest land. I went hiking on a couple of trails here with my parents and siblings and all of us had a great time no matter who was an avid hiker or not. The sunlight filters through the massive tall canopy of redwoods and touches the forest ground ever so gently. We call them 'rays from God.'

This beautiful park's amazing redwood trees are what makes it such a popular tourist attraction - they truly are spectacular and worth the trip. The popularity is also what makes it hard to find a bit of trail to commune with nature, as the crowds can get quite large and sometimes the trails can be crowded. I would suggest going there in the off-season or during the week.

PROS: thousand-year-old redwood
CONS: crowds

Muir Woods is a nice quiet (well, when there aren't tons of visitors on the pathways during peak times in the summer) place to commune with trees. There is a mile long path designed for strollers and wheelchairs through the trees and woods, but you can also hike up into the hill paths if able. It is very nice to go there on hot days, since the trees keep the area shaded and very cool.
