HikingGreat!

Did trail going up Miwok and down Dias. I like this direction because you can see Muir beach on way down. Shade on Redwood Creek portion but little on other legs. Nice views. Not many people on this weekday

Fun hike! Especially with the rainy and foggy weather! The stairs were a little harder and it was muddy but worth it! Views are breathtaking.

Great hike! Would recommend starting at Stinson Beach rather than in Muir Woods. Good mix of redwoods and coastal environments to keep the hike and views interesting!

Nice trail through Muir Woods. At the start some parts are one way, but you can maneuver throughout and then cut left at bridge 4 and head up and you’ll be okay. First part of the hike is forest and the last part is an open ridge. Personally, I think Mt. Tam has better trails with better views, but it was nice and especially if you want something easily accessible because the first part is paved/wooden. Parking reservations required. Mainly just a hike to see the trees and even then they aren’t THAT huge if you’re used to hiking Mount Tam. I imagine this trail would’ve been more enjoyable in the winter when the river/creeks were running with much more water and there were water falls. There were many dry creek/river beds along the first half. Not a hard trail overall pretty easy.

We didn't encounter any closures on the route on 8/8/2020. (I suggested a trail edit to get that updated) Nice hike with beautiful scenery. I wouldn't do leg day before this one. You'll get plenty of legs and buns toning Also, this is a very busy trail

Nice summer hike to Stinson Beach and back to Mill Valley. Just under 7.5 miles each way. Bring 2-3L water as it can get warm in the afternoon. Plan to take a dip in the Pacific. Trail can get a bit crowded in summer, but not too bad. Two ‘up and downs’ each way. One between Mill Valley and Muir Woods and the other Cardiac Hill. Lots of stair-climbing out of Mill Valley but don’t worry - most of trail is not like this except perhaps for similar climb @ 1.5 miles on the way back from Stinson Beach.

Parked at the trailhead and didn’t have to pay a dime the entire trail! Really nice to hike into Muir Woods and then hike out.

Great loop hike and you get two beaches. I give four stars because landscape is similar throughout.

Great hike! Challenging, but rewarding, with a stop at Stinson Beach to conclude it. The trail was beautiful most of the way, and it was really cool to watch the fog rolling in early in the morning as we climbed elevation.

HikingGreat!

All trails open and (luckily) spotted no wasps though there were warning signs up. Good trail, not many people, 90+% mask wearing compliance. Suggest adding some mileage by going in the direction of Stinson Beach on Dipsea Trail for awhile to peep the ocean before doubling back. Nice mix of things to see and terrain.

Beautiful scenery. If you are hiking on a sunny day it is nice because once you get to the top, the lookout to the ocean is outstanding. It is also great to hike with the fog though due to the fact that it remains colder so you don’t burn up as easily.

One of the best hikes I have done in the Bay Area. I would rate it more stars but unfortunately there is no such option! :) The early morning mist makes everything in the forest beautiful. Starting as early as 6 was definitely one of the best decisions for this hike. Start early especially if you are doing the Double Dipsea which is 15 miles with 4000 ft of elevation.

Crowded on Muir Woods Trail portion of loop, but thinned out significantly once on Bootjack. Only saw about a couple dozen people the entire Bootjack trail route. Wasps are out. My son got stung one time at the beginning of the hike. Total drive by sting that happened fast. Ouch! Overall great trail, with lots of cool bridges, trees, and ferns. Very beautiful. Parking was easy with reservation. No issues.

HikingGreat!No shade

This trail is super beautiful with great scenery. We started at 9am and parking lot was almost vacant. We did the trail clockwise so the biggest incline was at the beginning. As other people said, we passed through a farm house and opened two gates, so wipes are necessary to have. After that there’s that steep incline. First we spent sometime at Tennessee beach and walked passed the rocks on the left side which were filled with great wavy colorful rocks! Unbelievable! Then we headed to the pirates cove and we climbed down to the beach. On our way back we saw three whales which were very small from far distance but bringing a binoculars would have been a great idea! We loved the trail overall and people were very mindful and all had masks on! Highly recommend this trail!
