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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
