Since sunset varies with the seasons, the closing time is slightly different each day. Approximate closing times for some sample dates are:
Sunday, January 31 — 6:00 PM
Sunday, March 14 — 8:00 PM
Sunday, September 19 — 7:00 PM
Sunday, October 10 — 6:00 PM
Sunday, November 7 — 5:00 PM
The Visitor Center will typically close 30 minutes prior to the closure of the park. The Cafe currently closes at 6:30 PM and the Gift Shop currently closes at 7:00 PM. These times will also move earlier during the fall and winter months.
Editor's Note: If you happen to visit Muir Woods on Thanksgiving, Mother's Day or another time when many of us strive to be with our families, the Park Service professionals you encounter there will be working on a holiday to keep Muir Woods open for us. Please take a moment to thank the Muir Woods staff members you meet on those holidays and let them know you appreciate them working on a day that many of us treasure as a day off.
