Muirwoods/Napa

Leaving San Francisco Airport heading to Napa and would like to stop at Muirwoods on the way. Or, Leave Napa headed to San Francisco and stop Muirwoods on way back. What do you suggest?

Go to Muir Woods before you go to Napa. Trying to get it in on the way to the airport is, I think, not a good idea. Not knowing the time you will be traveling from Napa, nor the time your plane leaves.....I would still take into consideration that if there are crowds you may need to park a distance from the entrance and walk.....and you might want to spend some time there without worrying about plane time.

(Also, get to Muir Woods early, before the crowds arrive.)

Yes, it really depends on time of year, time of day, and day of week. If you are just going into San Francisco to stay and not to the airport, visiting Muir Woods on the way there may make sense but, again, it depends on timing. Muir Woods gets very crowded and on weekends, you may have to take a shuttle bus.

<<What do you suggest?>>

Puter gave you good advise.

However, without knowing anything about 1) day of week, 2) time of day or 3) month of travel (for both your outbound or return trips), trying to respond with any sort of nuance is impossible.
