New to Muir Woods: parking and shuttle reservations

In January, the National Park Service will begin requiring reservations for all personal vehicles or shuttles at Muir Woods. Parking and shuttle reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance of a visit, and people can either reserve a parking space for $8 per car or a shuttle seat for $3; the fees are in addition to the $10 park entrance fee for people aged 16 or older. (Commercial carriers will make reservations through a separate system.)

NPS said the new system would help reduce overcrowding, noting that “annual visitation is expected to be reduced to under 1 million from an estimated 1.2 million visitors.”
