Muir Woods National Monument is located in California’s Marin County just across Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco and occupies one of the Mount Tamalpais valleys. It is well-known for its forests filled with coastal redwood trees which are 1000-years old giant trees, some of the biggest trees in the world. Hillside loop trail offers a great way to visit Muir Woods along a scenic route.

The Main Trail about 2 miles is easy and one of the most popular trails in Muir Woods which follows a stream with mid-sized redwoods on either side. Its main aim is protecting precious and awe inspiring Redwood forest for future generations. This is the best tree-lover’s monument that could possibly be found in all the forests of the world.

If you are a nature lover and want a short trail trip, you must check out Muir Woods National Monument. Stay at the Adante Hotel in San Francisco after your long day in the woods, and get rooms at very affordable rates. For more details visit: http://www.adantehotel.com/
