Sunrise Guided Tour of Muir Woods

The most beautiful time to visit an old-growth forest
By - posted 10/10/2015 No Comment

Attend a sunrise guided tour through Muir Woods National Monument. While the early hour may seem uncivilized, if not down-right obscene, sunrise is a particularly beautiful time to visit an old-growth redwood forest.

You’ll learn about the local plant and animal residents (more likely seen in early morning), all of whom have been invited to stop by and meet you.
