Note: Muir Woods is open and the Muir Woods Shuttle service is now running on weekends.
Insiders Tip: If you want to visit Muir Woods, buy your tickets early. During the busy summer travel season both shuttle tickets and parking reservations can sell out many days in advance.
Insiders Tip: There is no cell service or WiFi service in the area around Muir Woods. If you need to use Lyft or Uber or to download your parking reservation receipt, do so before coming to the park. I see lots of people at the parking lot entrance who can’t access their online reservation… and have to drive back into an area with cell service to download it and then return.
