Today I took a journey up to Muir Woods, in Marin County. Even though I have been there many times it is always refreshing and breathtaking to take in these gentle giants. Almost feels like an Ewok forest though, with the trees climbing over 350 feet and the forest floor covered in ferns.

The first thing I must say when travelling up to Muir woods, along the highway before you get there, you will encounter the Nut Guy. You must stop and at least get something. The honey roasted almonds and his macadamians are excellent and out-of-this-world. Especially the macadamians…. they literally are like butter and melt in your mouth.

p.s. you may think the cars are parked here just for the view, but they came to see the Nut Guy….. trust me ;)

Muir Woods can often be very crowded, and parking can be a nightmare (especially during long, beautiful or holiday weekends). The admission to the park is $3. There is a tiny cafe there which was great on Saturday because I was fre-e-e-e-e-zing and some coffee came in really handy.

Essentially there is main trail area that does lead to some other longer trails, but for the most part, you will just stay in this main area.

The scent of the redwoods, the sound of the purling brook, and rays of sunlight streaming between the trees is truly a site to behold.
