Don't miss stopping here if you have the chance. The views are amazing, parking is free and easy, and there is a ton to explore. You can easily spend a whole morning or afternoon here, but you can enjoy it even if you only have a little time to spare. I'll be back again and again!

A lovely walk to great views. Can be crowded on the weekends and holidays but worth it when the sun is shining.

Visited the Land's End beach and hiked the trail to the Labyrinth from here recently. It begins with a beautiful view of the Sutro Baths and then you hit the trail to go towards the Labyrinth. The hike makes you break a sweat for sure and it is beautiful the entire way with views of the Golden Gate and the... More

The now derelict Sutro baths are situated here which at the time were the world's largest swimming pool complex. It struggled to make money and caught fire when inthe process of being demolished in 1966. All that is left now are the concrete bases. I believe the Fishermans Wharf seals also used to live here

One of my coworkers recommended visiting this park for the trails with gorgeous views of the Golden Gate bridge, and a fun hidden labyrinth. Sadly, the labyrinth has almost completely washed away, but the views of the bridge were still exceptional. The trails are very easy and well maintained, and you can buy water, food, gifts, etc at the visitor's... More

It is a very nice walk on a good day. Beautiful views, fresh air ... Need to have jacket because of wind.

Great place to read about the history of the area, look at old photos, eat delicious cakes and drink coffee while taking in a fantastic view. This is where the seals of Pier 39 came from.

Can have a great view of the Marin headlands and Golden Gate bridge, but make sure it is not a foggy day or you can't see a darn thing.

Every time we are in San Francisco, we do this walk at least once. Grab the #38 bus (but be sure the bus is going to Land's End because some buses do not go all the way out there). The path is mostly level except for some steps about halfway (about 60 of them). There are magnificent views of the... More

Land's End features trails, the ruins of the Sutro Baths, a nice gift shop and killer views of the Bay. A must see.
