Muir Woods is the most stunning redwood grove in the Bay Area, but how do you get there from San Francisco?

We don't recommend driving. Parking is limited, and you often need to walk a mile or more from parking to the entrance.

One option is to take a ferry to Larkspur Landing or Sausalito from Fisherman's Wharf.

You then then take the Muir Woods shuttle the rest of the way to the park.

The best option is to take a tour bus. They pick up in San Francisco and drive you straight to Muir Woods

You get an entry ticket, too, so you can go right in and spend 1.5 hours exploring the redwoods

That's a lot better than dealing with ticket lines at the entrance, especially on popular Summer days.
