Hike to the Nature Friends Tourist Club

Added by Nick Wagner

Combine 2 of the bay's best - hiking and beer. You can hike part of the historic Dipsea Trail to the Tourist Club. Duration: Half day.

On a warm weekend afternoon, this is a great place to grab a beer after hiking or running near Muir Woods. You can access the club by hiking the Dipsea (2 miles), the Redwood (~1 mile) or the Sun Trail (~0.8 miles). If you're coming by car, there's a parking lot above the club with a short hike downhill. Check their Calendar for hours and dates.

As others have said get there early and bring cash if you want to purchase anything there. Only open to the public apx 3 days/year so you have to plan ahead!

Bring board games and blankets...epic entire day trip if you want it to be...and you will!

Can't ask for anything better then a beautiful hike and a cold beer waiting for you at the end. The Nature Tourist Club is one of a kind. Hidden amongst the trees in Muir Woods it has a beautiful location, great German beers (and wine), and board games to play. Make sure you check their website to see when they're open to the public. They have a Mayfest 5/18 you can buy tickets for on their website.

It can get pretty packed in here - but it really is worth the hike.
