A great hike

Muirly Through the Woods: Skip the crowds at Muir Woods' main entrance and start up on Panoramic Highway by the Mountain Home Inn (post-hike brunch spot). You'll hike high on the ridge paralleling the road for a few minutes before descending into the canyon, which is covered by ancient redwoods. At the bottom you'll be near the entrance to Muir Woods. Walk all the way along Redwood Creek before veering off on Canopy View Trail and ascending back to your starting place. If the weather's good, grab an outdoor table at the Mountain Home Inn.
