Professional Suggestions: Take a shuttle from Sausalito (learn instructions intently)! The final two occasions we tried to discover a parking area at Muir Woods, we failed. In December, shuttles function solely on weekends. Additionally, there isn’t any cell or Wi-Fi service at Muir Woods. If you might want to name a rideshare or obtain your parking reservation receipt, achieve this earlier than coming to the park.
