The Muir National Woods Monument was established in January 9, 1908. It was named John Muir in order to fulfil the request of William and Elizabeth Kent, who donated the woods in order to save the trees.

Until the 1800?s, numerous coastal valleys in northern California were covered with coast redwood trees, the same trees found in the Muir Woods National Monument today. The trees of Muir Woods were spared from logging just for the reason that they are hard to access. It was one of the last uncut old-growth Redwood sites by 1905.

Today, visitors can walk and have a peaceful, serene, relaxing time within the forest as some people consider it to be the ultimate location for tree lovers.
