Muir Woods is a pleasantly peaceful redwood monument just off Highway One. The drive down to the woods is enough of a reason to go. After you park, stroll through the green, over grown ferns and walk across crickety wooden bridges above creeks through big trees as you follow dirt trails into the shady redwood grove. Don't forget to look up to see just how tall the trees have grown over the past hundred plus years as beams of sunlight burst through their branches as you breathe the cool, fresh air.
