Muir Woods National Monument
What's the attraction: Even though the summer has so far been cool, it can still get hot in the Central Valley Muir Woods is a great escape to enjoy redwood trees that provide cool, dark shade for a stroll or picnic.
What to expect: The climate is cool and shaded with temperatures ranging from 40 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. You might want to bring a long sleeve shirt if you tend to get chilly.
Even on a busy day, you usually can find a trail without too many people and take in the quiet habitat.
There are paved trails for the elderly and those in wheel chairs. Most of the trails are loops that take anywhere from a half-hour to two hours to finish. Some of the trails also continue into Mount Tamalpais State Park or go to Muir Woods Beach, where you can stop off for a quick dip in the ocean during your hike or on the way home.
Before you head out on your hike, you might want to stop by the Visitor's Center entrance to grab a map and check on the condition of the trails. There is also a gift shop and cafe, although you might want to just bring a sandwich for a picnic.
Lady bug paradise: Every year, lady bugs descend on the forest from the Central Valley in search of cooler air. When you visit, look for them in rays of sunlight or landing in clusters on fallen trees, limbs or plants. There will be signs along trails directing visitors to the clusters, or you can get the information from the Visitor's Center.
What is new this year? A fallen tree is a learning opportunity for kids and adults to learn about the anatomy of the giant trees. The tree fell on June 9 north of Cathedral Grove, and it is located near a creek with salmon fingerlings that you can observe on one of four bridges.
As with most of California's national parks, water is flowing faster than usual because of unseasonable rain in June.
Avoid the traffic jam: Parking in Muir Woods can be a bit tricky because there are limited spots and tons of tourists. Consider taking the Muir Woods Taxi, that runs from Mill Valley & Stinson Beach. For schedules and pricing, go to Better yet, reserve a room at the Stinson Beach Redwoods Haus Inn, -beach.com, , only 6 miles NW of Muir Woods, by way of Hwy. 1 or Panoramic Hwy. Either hike to the SBRHINN, from Muir Woods or hike to Muir Woods from the SBRHINN, to Pantoll Ranger Station & Campground then via the Matt Davis Trail, hike to Stinson Beach, to Belvedere St., distance 7 miles. The SBRHINN is located at #1 Belvedere & Hwy. #1, plenty of onstreet parking.
Directions: Take 101 north about 11 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Then, get on Highway 1/Stinson Beach exit. Follow the signs to Muir Woods. For more information on directions, hours, and fees, go to /muwo.
