The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service urge visitors to use public transportation to get to the park’s many sites. A planning tool is integrated into the interactive map to the right.
Advisory: Some of the sites in the Golden Gate National Parks experience significant congestion and lack of park parking during peak periods. See below for details.
Marin Headlands >>
This free shuttle operates each weekend through September. The shuttle picks up every thirty minutes from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. along Bunker Road, Field Road and Fort Baker. Stops include: Bay Area Discovery Museum, Smith Road trail head, Marine Mammal Center, Rodeo Beach, Visitor Center, Nike Missile Site, Battery Alexander and Point Bonita Lighthouse.
Muir Woods National Monument >>
Muir Woods experiences consistently heavy traffic congestion and parking problems during Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am–4 pm. Parking can be as far away from the park entrance as a mile and a half during these times. Please consider visiting during other days or times, use the Muir Woods Shuttle, or private tour operators.
