It's hard to imagine that this place exists on the edge of the city! It is just cool to stand at the top and look out at the ocean. I walked down the path to where the baths used to be and then on down to watch the waves crashing in. I could of spent the rest of the day... More

This is where the Sutro Bath House used to be. Now all there is left are the ruins and the abandoned pools but there are hike paths and a store and a cafeteria with clean restrooms. If you have time, have lunch or dinner at the Cliff House nearby. This was a surprise to me because I wanted to visit... More

We were on a bus tour to the Golden Gate Park and then were driven on to Lands End - the views are amazing across the mouth of San Francisco Bay and seeing the high waves crashing on the beach is magnificent. Definitely a place to return to again.

We stopped here on a coach tour of the city. The views are great, but it's quite sad to look at the old photos of the impressive buildings and gardens which were once there. Still, worth a visit and I'm sure the Cliff House Restaurant would have been nice to dine at.

This is just an amazing place to hike. The site is at the mouth of SF bay and has stunning views of the bay, Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate bridge. If you take the trail down to Mile Rocks Beach there is a hidden labyrinth. At the main parking lot, just above the Cliff House, is a small but... More

This is a great place to get away from the city and so a little hiking. Great views of the golden gate. Make sure you hike to mile beach and instead of going further down the trail at the fork, go straight and see the cool labyrinth overlooking the bay.

We loved this hike because it gave us a great view and a good walk without leaving the city. The parking was easy. We would do it again in a second.

Lands end is really lands end! The views were amazing !You're following this coastal trail that hugs the beautiful bay on your left ! You can do this for an hour or go further in which the trail will take you closer to fort point which is right under the Golden Gate Bridge. We came searching for the rock maze.... More
