"Muir Woods contains one of the Bay Area’s last stands of virgin coast redwoods. These grand trees tower above Redwood Creek, while ferns, redwood sorrel, and azaleas carpet the forest floor. The hike is relatively easy, much of it following a flat, paved (wheelchair-accessible) trail along Redwood Creek. Park activities are limited to walking and viewing. Muir Woods gets many visitors: To protect it from overuse, park rules prohibit picnicking, camping, portable radios, dogs (except seeing-eye dogs), fishing, or tossing coins in the creek. Stay on trails and do not climb fences. There is a small fee."
