MUIR WOODS HAS BEEN CLOSED DUE TO HIGH WINDS ON JANUARY 18 TO AVOID ANYONE BEING HURT BY FALLING BRANCHES. THEY EXPECT TO RE-OPEN TOMORROW.
Muir Woods Hours
Muir Woods National Monument is open every day of the year from 8:00 AM to sunset, including all national, state and local holidays. You can check the time for sunset in Mill Valley, CA (the town adjacent to Muir Woods) on this site.
Since sunset varies with the seasons, the closing time is slightly different each day. Approximate closing times for some sample dates are:
January 31, 2016 — 6:00 PM
March 14, 2016 — 7:00 PM
June 20, 2016 — 8:00 PM
September 19, 2016 — 7:00 PM
October 10, 2016 — 6:00 PM
The Visitor Center will typically close 30 minutes prior to the closure of the park, as does the Muir Woods Trading Company Cafe. The Gift Shop remains open a little longer to allow guests to buy their final items.
Editor’s Note: If you happen to visit Muir Woods on Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day or another time when many of us strive to be with our families, the Park Service professionals you encounter there will be working on a holiday to keep Muir Woods open for us. Please take a moment to thank the Muir Woods staff members you meet on those holidays and let them know you appreciate them working on a day that many of us treasure as a day off.
