This quiet cove, beach, and lagoon tucked into the coastline, three miles west of Muir Woods, is a favorite spot among locals. You can go up to the newly completed, multi-use Dias Ridge trail- on a ridgeline above Muir Beach. The overlook picnic site is scenic but windy, so remember to carry layers. If you are afraid of heights avoiding the overlook is recommended.
