We took this trail clockwise beginning in the Muir Woods parking area (note that you need to reserve parking in advance and pay a park entry fee). A stunning walk through the redwoods followed by a big climb, then a mile or two in hot sun with gorgeous panoramic views of the valley and the ocean, then a steep descent with stairs. Great hike!

Good mix of sun and shade. It does go through Muir Woods where the main gate is with all the tourists.

We started at the Muir Woods parking lot up the Dipsea trail. It’s a steep grade at the beginning with quite a few wood stairs, but along the highest points you can get a beautifully clear view of the ocean beyond the hills. On a warm June day the first 2/3 of this trail was HOT! Pretty much entirely exposed among the scrub. Awesome to finish among the cool shade of the redwoods!

Great trail loop that starts out with some views and an uphill climb and ends with nice redwoods in Muir Woods.
