At the northwestern corner of San Francisco, there is a series of stunning views at every turn in this wild and windy trail. Hillsides of cypress and wildflowers, views of shipwrecks and access to the ruins of Sutro baths, a San Francisco specials memory.

I was there on Friday 1/23/15 and watched the sunset i this area. I walked some of the trails and ended up watching the actually set by the Sutro Baths. Beautiful Sunset, Rolling waves, Cliffs, rocks, trails, caves. Such a fun experience. Be ready to work your feet, calves, butt, thighs and lungs. Its a workout to walk the trails... More

The idea of Land's End is romantic, and the visitor centre is nice. But Ocean Drive needs a real makeover.

Lands End is a must see attraction when visiting San Francisco. I recommend the Coastal Trail if you're stretched for time (2.9 mile loop). If you're more adventurous, then you might want to consider the Lands End loop, which includes Sutro Baths, China Beach and the Cliff House (5.2 miles). Both trails are fairly easy and you can't go wrong... More

After driving for about 10 minutes with my sister from her house in Daly City, I was very surprised to see Lands End! It is so near and yet one feels like very far away from civilization! It offers a lot of activities: fishing in the Pacific Ocean (lower sections of Lands End), hiking up the trails, eating at the... More

We will never tire of this place. The hike is fairly easy, the view of the Golden Gate bridge is beautiful. It's a MUST to visit this place for some time away from the City, it always makes us feel as though we are in some other city and never close to a big city like SF. The neighborhood close... More

The pathways through the forest were stunning, like taken from a "lord of the rings" scene. Also the ocean's waves splashing into the rocks from the beach were adding to the atmosphere. Totally worth the effort. Recommended for romantic dates :)

Views! Views! Views! If you like the outdoors and what to change it up a little from just seeing the city sites than you will love this place. It was absolutely beautiful! The Views were excellent. I would recommend hiking all the way down to the ocean. Beware, I live in the mountains and hike at least once per week.... More

I walk this trail weekly with my little dog. It's always busy (but not too crowded) and has some of the best views of the city. There are little trails that go off from the normal path that are fun to explore! Just be careful with cliffs, garbage, etc. Pez loves exploring but I have to make sure he doesn't... More
