The Visitor Center will close 30 minutes prior to the closure of the park, and the Muir Woods Trading Company Cafe will close 60 minutes prior to Muir Woods hours for closing the overall park. 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, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4 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.
