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!
