Starting at the visitors center, take the boardwalk into Muir Woods to where the Fern Creek Trail splits off. Follow that until you get to the Lost Trail and take a right. When you intersect the Ocean View Trail take a right and it will take you right back to Muir Woods.

The most serene of the trails I visited while two days in Muir Woods National Monument. I highly recommend for those who want an easy hike with a focus on the beauty surrounding them! Many others trails were beautiful, but this, to me, was the most beautiful...and not too many people were on it both times I hiked it.
