Muir Woods: Spending the Day by – and in – Big Trees
It’s the end of the week and the beginning of a 3-day weekend! Anyone else excited and have some fun plans for the holiday? One great thing to do over 3-day weekends is check out some of America’s gorgeous National Parks, such as the Muir Woods National Monument Park, which is located just 11 miles north of the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. Muir Woods is a fun park to walk around in because it has easy to hike trails and some pretty awesome, BIG trees.
Though Northern California is home to other national parks with even BIGGER Redwood trees, those are several hours away from San Francisco, making this park an easy compromise if you’re short on time to see some of the rugged wilderness of Northern California, plus the vibrant city of nearby San Francisco.
