There are pretty views here! However, after driving down the coast, it was much of what we had already seen.

Went on a weekday morning in the summer, with a fair bit of fog. The walk was nice, would not call it hiking but still a good length. I liked the helpful history markers (part of it is an old railroad route), and good view points both close to the water and farther up the cliff.

I came here for a wedding and it was a lovely area to walk around, it is away from the more touristy areas. There is a parking lot off the street and you can walk to the prettier parts from there. I can't be certain, but I don't think it is particularly accessible for those with limited mobility.

Great walkable trail that brings closer to the Golden Gate Bridge at each overlook. There's even some light trails that take you Down to the beaches and overlook. Definitely enjoyed my time at lands end. Use the bathrooms first...there are none along the way.

There are truly amazing views, but at the time I visited, it was about six pm and freezing. It is interesting because you also get to see the old Sutro Baths, which, from the 1930s, look like ruins.

Beautiful views from lookout and hiking trails. However, stick to those. Do not wander down to the bath ruins at sea level. They look appealing until you realize that up close it's a sad reminder of how people can destroy beauty. The ruins (brick foundations) are covered in graffiti. There is garbage EVERYWHERE randomly thrown since there are no garbage... More

The new Visitor's Center has a great collection of old photos that capture this area in its heyday. Really interesting to walk around and take in the sea air. Seeing the remnants of the Sutro Baths was amazing and saw tons of seals on seal rock! We grabbed a good coffee in the center to warm us up.

Who would've guessed that there is a great trail in San Francisco with these amazing views! Remember to bring your camera! Here's a perfect weekday (not so crowded) half-day outing if it's good weather: 1. Park across the street from the National Park Visitor Center (see my map) 2. Eat Breakfast in the more casual Bistro Restaurant at the Cliff... More

The new building and parking lot make Lands end much more accessible and enjoyable for visitors. Excellent restroom facilities. After a walk on the accessible part of the pathway with views of the Pacific and Golden Gate Bridge get lunch or a snack at Cliff House.

Who wouldn't love to see the the Bay and Pacific Ocean in all it's glory. The views here are great as well as the hiking. This is a wonderful way to get to have some nature in the city you can walk from the Sutro baths to the bridge if you like passing by Bakers beach why not stop for... More
