Right outside our hotel door you can hike down into the lush, green and quiet Muir Woods National Monument, home to a rare virgin stand of ancient redwoods.
Mt. Tam’s deep canyon walls protected these redwoods from the logging industry that decimated America’s old growth forests in centuries past. Feel an immeasurable peace and serenity as you wander among thousand year old trees—the world’s oldest living things. And lift your eyes up as you enter the majestic stand of trees at the bottom; you’ll understand why it is called Cathedral Grove.
