Muir National Monument, part of the US National Park System, protects around 554 acres of forest home to the tallest and oldest trees inhabiting our earth: the Coast Redwood Trees (Sequoia sempervirens).
Muir Woods is one of the few old-growth forests (aka virgin forest) left in existence, and thus present a unique and uncontaminated ecosystem. When visiting San Francisco, you must at least spend a day in Muir Woods to admire these giant Sequoias and to walk through the forest to see the incredible variety of local Flora & Fauna.
