The Fern Creek Trail at Muir Woods National Monument in Mill Valley, California is an easy 0.4 mile one-way trail that leads from the Lost Trail to the Redwood Creek Trail. Please note that this trail is technically longer than 0.4 miles one-way, but as of mid-May 2018, the bridge that crosses Fern Creek has been destroyed by a fallen tree and you cannot go any further than the trail junction with the Lost Trail.
This trail passes yet more ancient coastal redwoods as it winds along Fern Creek. This trail is lightly-trafficked and usually very quiet. You can use this trail to hop on the Lost Trail which meets up with the Canopy View Trail.
Fee: There's a $10 fee to enter Muir Woods for adults. For more information, check out their website.
