Experience Muir Woods by getting off the beaten path, this nice loop takes you away from the crowds and lets you experience some of the more pristine aspects of the redwood grove. Take the Ocean View Trail to the Lost Trail. Connect to the Fern Creek Trail to return to the Visitor Center.

What can anyone say about hiking among the sequoia's? Slightly crowded at first but most people are there just to look at the massive trees so it thins out quickly. Never really a steep incline/decline and views never end. If I lived in the area, I would be here every weekend. Oh...we were lucky but get there early for parking. You hate to enter a "five star" rating for every rating but this one certainly deserves it!

Very nice, although no real ocean view.

You really can't see the ocean. However the trail is nice and easy to hike to. Great scenery.

Beautiful hike! Unfortunately too foggy to see the ocean. Turned around and went back via the Lost trail and the Camp Eastwood trail.
