The Redwood Creek Loop Trail at Muir Woods National Monument in Mill Valley, California is an easy 0.9 mile loop hike that encompasses the portion of the Redwood Creek Trail from Bridge 3 to Bridge 1 and back (in this recording). This trail is probably the 2nd most popular trail people end up hiking at Muir Woods since it's paved, accessible, and flat.

This recording starts at Bridge 3 and heads south to Bridge 1 and back, but you can start this loop directly after stepping into Muir Woods. You'll pass the Founders Grove, Bohemian Grove (with a redwood tree that you can stand inside of), and various other ancient coastal redwoods.

I found that the eastern side of this trail is a bit more interesting than the western side, but the western side has the Bohemian Grove while the eastern side has the Founders Grove. The Bohemian Grove is probably a bit more interesting to look at and can be found just south of Bridge 2.

For additional hiking and more redwoods, be sure to check out the rest of the Redwood Creek Trail, Hillside Trail, Fern Creek Trail, Lost Trail, and 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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
