If you want to see the Golden Gate Bridge from a beautiful perspective, be sure to hike the trail at Lands End. It is easy to get to from downtown San Francisco and will give you pause.....the trail is easy to hike....fairly level (or you can take several side trails that are more challenging if you'd like)...and offers beautiful views...

Full of magic. The old sutro baths drenched in recreation history turned into a labrador's favorite spot for diving after swollen, saliva covered tennis balls. Caves. Waves lapping into dark, mysterious holes. The sound of tide echoing off walls. Stories of fires felling grand, marvelous ideas and their buildings.. And then - majestic views of the Golden gate, the surprise... More

I have been to SF several times and only recently visited Lands End for the first time this past weekend... what a hidden gem! The pebbled path to walk down to the beach is a bit steep, I couldn't go down in my heeled boots, but there was an alternate flatter path to the right which went up to a... More

Probably some of the best views on the planet on this hike. Not especially difficult either. Definitely worth doing, and kid friendly.

Did this on the same a Sunday, when we rented a few bikes. You can cycle along Land's End and also do all the other great places as well. Be sure to use a bike though, don't go walking, it's really far! A fantastic view on the bridge and its surrounds await you!

Land's end is a very scenic spot to fit into a SF vacation. It is easily accessible by car and public transit, offers a great spot for lunch or dinner (the Cliff House), historic sites (the Sutro Baths) and the Pacific Ocean. Definitely worth a visit.

Did this hike again. Easy parking in multiple lots. And a pretty easy trail to walk/hike although there’s a couple sets of stairs. Nice views of the GG Bridge from so many places. Go enjoy tranquility and beauty in San Francisco.

We made the trip to lands End by bus (Geary 38) which is quite a long way but it was worth it. A new Parks & Recreation Visitor Centre opened in 2012 is a great starting point to explore the beach and the woods.

Reflect on your life out here. Good for a solo jaunt in the fog. Hike up Ocean Beach at nightime, watch the campfires.

The views are spectacular and it's a great place to spend an afternoon. The paths are well appointed although rugged and quite strenuous. Snacks and water are available at the Welcome Center. I just wish I wouldn't have stuffed myself on endless champagne and the all you can eat brunch buffet at the Cliff House prior to hiking around this... More
