What to do with a long day in Muir Woods National Monument?
Let’s begin with the Redwood Creek Trail, but then avoid the crowds by climbing up Canopy trail.
Descend along Fern Trail back to Redwood Creek Trail, and continue up up up Bootjack Trail, all the way to the antique Mountain Theater.
Connect via Old Mine Trail to Dipsea Trail, enjoy the views, and follow it all the way down to the end, closing the loop.
(There were enough water fountains on the way to keep me hydrated.)
