Muir Woods National Monument is a redwood forest located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It protects over 500 acres of redwood trees. Lush and green due to the proximity of the Pacific Ocean and wet weather of the region, it is home to several species of birds and animals.
The Redwood creek is rich in marine life and occasionally sea otters have been spotted swimming here. Thre are several hiking trails in the woods that are worth exploring. Moonlight walks are held on full moon nights.There is also a visitors centre which has changing exhibits and a gift shop. See San Francisco travel itinerary for visiting Muir Woods National Monument
