Naturalist-Led Tours of Muir Woods

Colin Sloan's 20 years of experience brings alive hidden wonders missed on self-guided walks. Using multi-sensory tactile techniques, sights, sounds and smells expand your awareness of Muir Woods National Monument. Although 80% of Muir Woods is covered in evergreen growth, seasonal variations unseen by others become visible in the redwood habitat.

The Peace of the Ancient Redwoods

Slowing down to nature's pace, flowers, rocks and animals show up in personal contacts on the trail. Tours are scheduled away from crowds to heighten the quiet solitude of the Muir Woods.

John Muir's words: "This is the best tree-lover's monument that could possibly be found in all the forests in the world" last for years as you absorb a naturalist-led tour of Muir Woods.
