On a cloudy and windy day, We drove up here and couldn't believe the beauty. Even when it was cloudy. Well worth the drive. Continue on the Panoramic Highway for a spectacular drive in the forest with fantastic views.

Muir Beach is not far from Muir Woods. My group walked along a path to the sand that took us through beautiful grasses and flowers. The beach is small, with locals enjoying the shore flying kites and picnicking. Beautiful homes look down from the hills...More

If you love ocean views and being outside, this is a stop for you. The views are spectacular. The paths are well done and easy to follow. What we found most interesting were the concrete “lookouts” that were used early in the 20th century. We...More

If you travel to San Francisco, I highly recommend to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge on the short trip to Muir Woods National Park. It's an AWESOME place to see wonders of our world.

We stopped at Muir Beach after hiking through trails in Muir Woods. The beach was quiet & beautiful. We were able to get some amazing pictures & just hang out on the beach.
