Someone told us not to come here because it was "too hilly", but if you don't mind a bit of a challenging hike, it is absolutely worth a visit. There aren't too many food options around so pack snacks. Staff at the visitor's centre suggested that we walk to Sea Cliff and find food, which we did, but it took... More

this is a public park that provides you free parking and, shortly after a short walk, some astonishing views of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge! You can enjoy it on 10/15min or as much as 2h/3h. So, plenty of options for fun! Do not miss this place!!

Ok, I've decide to share this all-time favorite hiking place in SF. It's absolutely breathtaking and mood-changing when you want to get away from the urban jungle and head into Mother Nature-- that's just a bus ride away. The trail hugs and snakes around the sheer cliffs where the land literally ends. Across you can see the famed Golden Gate... More

Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, detours to the rocks and beach and neighborhood views. A fairly easy hike, yet a nice workout. Have lunch at the Cliff House after your walk!

Great hike to Eagle look out from lands end visitor center. It took about 2.5 hours round trip and we stopped to take in the views a few times. I have lived in SF for 30 years and have never done this hike before. I would not miss it.

It was a nice introduction as our first view of the Pacific. The parking lot was excellent and the gift shop had a good variety of items.

I wouldn't call this a "Must See" in San Fran but it is historic so we enjoyed the exercise. It's not as beautiful as the Marin Headlands nor does it have the views so just know that beforehand.

This was a nice little spot to walk and take in the views of the Pacific Ocean, the San Francisco Bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Liked the view of the ocean, the hiking trail, and the opportunity to see the Golden Gate Bridge from several vantage points. Nothing I disliked. Best place in the city for me. Try dinner at the Cliff house after your hike.

This was my favorite part of visiting San Francisco and I think my husband would agree. The hike was as long or as short as you wanted it to be with amazing views of the ocean, Golden Gate bridge, and mountains all along the way. Definitely explore the small paths off the main trail, you never know what amazing view... More
