Intersection of the Lost Trail and Canopy View Trail Kirke Wrench/National Park Service
From the top descending into Muir Woods National Monument, you'll find switchbacks, loose footing, and plenty of roots and branches and rocks to step over. The descent will take you through a fast-changing landscape. You'll be shaded most of the way with pockets of light sneaking in between the tree tops.
This trail is usually combined with a number of other trails to complete a loop through the Monument. You'll find others going in both directions.
