Muir Woods National Monument
This 560-acre plot of coast redwoods is one of the last virgin redwood forests in the Bay Area. Muir Woods became a national monument in 1908 after Congressman William Kent donated land to the US government, insisting the park be named for conservationist John Muir. From the visitor center, the Main Trail (1mi) reaches Cathedral Grove, where trees as old as 1,000 years rise like spires.
