Really pretty but we hiked it when there was a trail run marathon going on so it was a lot of stopping & getting over for the runners. Service dogs only on trail

I like this one. we did alot at Muir woods and my tan trails

Gorgeous trail. Start on the Sun Trail side - end up in Muir Woods and the Dipsea. Kind of a bummer to go through the Muir Woods visitor center after such a gorgeous hike, but at least there is a bathroom stop. Gets beautiful again on the Dipsea.
