Draft Plan Issued For Solving Parking, Access Issues At Muir Woods National Monument

When my wife and I visited Muir Woods National Monument in California, we wound up parking on the side of a road about a half-mile from the park's entrance. And, we learned later in the day when we saw the line of cars similarly parked stretching for about two miles, that we were lucky. Now the National Park Service is working on a plan to improve parking and access at the monument just north of San Francisco Bay.
