On the first mile of your hike in Muir Woods, you’ll contend with lots of cameraswinging tourists. Overwhelmed by the ancient trees and touched by the sheer tranquility of the place, many walk as if in a cathedral, whispering and respectful. Venturing past the milling masses, you are rewarded with solitude. There for your discovery are ridge trails lined with young pine trees dripping with grandfather’s beard, bay and alder woodlands with flitting bushtits and hammering woodpeckers, sunny meadows, bridged streams with feathery ferns, hills full of huckleberries, and panoramic views of the Pacific. Trails Surface: 1 mile of paved pathway, then well-maintained, mostly single-track dirt trail.
