Jun 6, 2016

Take one step into Marin County’s Muir Woods and it’s easy to see why so many visitors trek to the national monument that lies just north of San Francisco. But the popular park has been experiencing overwhelming visitation the past few years. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports a plan to manage traffic and parkgoers is making slow progress.

If you plan on visiting Muir Woods this summer avoid going at peak times, that's between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., or consider public transportation. Find other tips at the National Park Service's website.

NPS and Marin County Board of Supervisors will be hosting a public informational meeting on traffic progress on Tuesday, June 14 at 10:30 a.m. at the Marin County Civic Center.
