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.
