Muir Woods National Monument

Muir Woods National Monument is located only eight miles north of San Francisco, California in Marin County and is known for its old-growth coastal redwoods, Sequoia sempervirens.

Coastal redwoods are the tallest trees in the world. They can reach over 300 feet high and 25 feet round. These trees can also live for over 2,000 years! The Muir Woods preserve these magnificent giants on land that was gifted from a philanthropist and conservationist named William Kent.
