Experience the Cathedral grove in Muir Woods and get off the main trail to avoid some of the crowds and have a truly pristine and wonderful experience. Take the Panoramic trail to the Lost Trail. Then Take the Fern Creek Trail to the visitor center. Return via the Ocean View Trail

The description didn't mention that this takes you into Muir Woods. This trail is great if you want to hike Muir Woods without paying the 25$ entry fee. If you want to avoid crowds though, this is not the trail for you. There isn't really an ocean view. This hike is primarily through the redwoods. (I will say that I prefer this trail to Muir Woods alone because it has more elevation gain.
