Winter Solstice in Muir Woods
Wednesday, December 21, 2016 | 3 to 5 pm
Muir Woods Visitor Center, Marin
Please note, to join the solstice activities in the woods, you’ll need to pay the Muir Woods $10 admission fee (in previous years some events outside of the woods were free, but that is not the case for 2016).
Rushing Redwood Creek, waving redwood pillars, thoughtful slugs and frantic bats are some of the signs of winter you’ll look for on this two mile hike through Muir Woods. December 21 may be the shortest day of the whole year, but it’s long on fun.
Please call 415.388.2596 to sign up and enjoy this awesome forest with Ranger Lucy.
Dress warmly and be prepared for a quiet walk in the woods to discover what the season has to share.
Event Warning: This is a very small event; Muir Woods is not set up to handle huge crowds, and the amount of parking is woefully small. So if celebrating the winter solstice is a very important event to you, it might be worth the trip, but if you don’t like crowds or are just going on a whim, we recommend you think twice about making the trek as it’s likely to be too crowded.
