We had a hard time finding a parking spot as we came around 9:30am. About half of the hike was shaded, but I would recommend shades and a hat for sun protection. We took the bus back close to Muir Woods after spending some time at Stinson beach. Despite the seagulls, the beach was really enjoyable. Be prepared for many staircases, some fallen branches, and scenic panoramas.
