The park was named for John Muir, a naturalist who was instrumental in establishing the National Park system. This National Monument is comprised of 560 acres of redwood forest. Cathedral and Bohemian Groves contain the largest Coastal redwoods - up to 252-feet tall and 14-feet across.

The 3 to 4 hour Muir Woods tour starts in San Francisco and heads through the Marina and the Presidio across the Golden Gate Bridge. From this point, there are spectacular views of San Francisco and the Marin Headlands.
The tour continues north before winding along picturesque Highway 1 to Muir Woods. This 550-acre National Monument is home to Coastal Redwoods, some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world. You will be given a map and guide to the park showing various trails for a self-guided tour. You are encouraged to visit the paved main trail that offers educational exhibits on the majestic redwood trees -- some known to be 1,000 years old. There are six miles of walking trails. The park is home to 50 species of birds, black-tailed deer, steelhead trout, and hundreds of other wild inhabitants. There is also a small cafe, a bookstore and a gift shop. The tour spends approximately 75 to 90 minutes at Muir Woods.

Muir Woods is located only 12 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in an isolated canyon. The park offers solitude, interpretive displays and programs, and numerous hiking trails. The entrance fee to Muir Woods is included with this tour.

Sightseeing highlights include: Golden Gate Bridge, The Marina, Palace of Fine Arts, Presidio, Marin Headlands, Mt. Tamalpais, and Muir Woods National Monument.

2. Sausalito:

Sausalito is just a ferry ride across the bay. Attractions such as “Bay Model” and “Bay Area Discovery Museum,” enchanting boutique shops, art studios and galleries and a wide selection of restaurants, outdoor cafes and bistros, many with stunning views back across the bay to the city.

3. The Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge, which spans the San Francisco Bay and connects the city to its northern suburbs, is one of the world's most famous structures. Its construction 78 years ago over a deep, treacherous channel was a marvel of modern engineering.

4. Alcatraz Prison Tour

Alcatraz Island is a 25-acre island located just 1 1/4-miles from San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf. Alcatraz is best known as the infamous and notorious former federal prison - home to the likes of Al Capone, George "Machine Gun" Kelley, and Robert "The Birdman" Stroud. From 1933 to 1963, the Federal Bureau of Prisons used the facility as a maximum security prison. It was closed in 1963 due to its expense. Today Alcatraz swarms with tourists -- about a million a year.

Your trip to Alcatraz departs on a ferry from Pier 33. The ferry across the San Francisco Bay takes about 10 minutes.
To reach the Cell House, you walk from the wharf up the steep hill on the old service road. The Cell House is at the top of the island. Along the way, you can stop and visit exhibits, see a variety of buildings that were used for various prison uses, and enjoy the views. Access: SEAT (Sustainable Easy Access Transport), is available for wheelchair users and visitors with a mobility need who are unable to walk up the quarter mile, 12% grade hill. Another option is to walk along the Agave Trail. The trail begins near the ferryboat landing on the east side of Alcatraz Island and continues to the southern tip of the island. The Agave Trail passes through a protected bird sanctuary and features beautiful plants and flowers. This trail offers fabulous views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The 35-minute audio headset tour of the Alcatraz cell block is a real highlight (for those who purchase the ticket that includes the Audio Tour). This tour is available in six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. During the tour, you will hear stories from former inmates and prison guards as you walk through the cellblock. After the Cell Block tour, there is time to see all the sites around the island and visit the Alcatraz museum and bookshop.
