There are over six miles of hiking trails to explore, with extensions out of the park for the mosre adventurous traveller. I followed three of the Redwood Canyon Loop Walks and saw a variety of surroundings. I kept wanting to go deeper into the forest, forgetting that I had to walk back the same distance once I gre tired.
Muir Woods National Monument is named after the legendary conservationist John Muir who is largely responsible for kickstarting the environmental awareness movement. Today's park is truly a stroke of luck that loggers had a hard time getting over the mountain to this remote area. It was bought up by a congressman, donated to the federal government, and made a national monument, ensuring that future generations could experience what northern California would truly look like if humans hadn't settled the land 200 years ago.
