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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
