Declared national monument in 1908 by the President Theodore Roosevelt, this park owes its name to the renowned naturalist John Muir, who said this place to be "the most amazing monument for tree lovers you can find on earth". Even during the most crowded summertime days, here you can breathe tranquillity, especially early in the morning.
Follow the designated walkways, made to preserve the vulnerable sequoia's roots and be amazed by these trees, straight and higher than a building, sometimes over a century old, rising above your head up until 250ft. To live an unforgettable experience, check the park scheduled activities and book a sunset guided tour or hear the tales told by the volunteers or rangers of the Park. In order to overcome the parking problem in high season, the best way to get there is taking the public shuttle to Muir Woods (from March to October) from Sausalito or to book a shuttle in a travel or tour agency.
