San Francisco: out-of-town excursions

Muir Woods National Monument

Just 11 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the forest offers a refreshing break from the city. President Theodore Roosevelt declared the park a national monument in 1908. Try to spot foxes, squirrels, bats and other creatures (the black-tailed deer if you’re lucky) as you take a walk, or catch a glimpse of a few of the remaining steelhead trout and Coho salmon at Redwood Creek. Visitor Center opens from 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the summer, while the park opens from 8:00 a.m. To 8:00 p.m. Free for children aged 15 and under, and $5 for ages 16 and over.
