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.

GG bridge can be viewed from a lot of different places in SF but this trail is perhaps the best vintage point. You'll be in awe of this amazing architect wonder on this trail, not to mention mesmerized by the beauty of the ocean

Provides a lovely view looking out over Ocean and from a different vantage point you can easily circle around and enjoy a similarly nice view of the city. Definitely worth a visit although I will admit that it got very crowded and it doesn't offer too much in the way of eateries (I think there was one cafe and one... More

The Land End's trail is a must-see for anyone visiting San Francisco. You will see beautiful cliffs, pine trees and beaches, not to mention spectacular views of Golden Gate Bridge. Such a great escape from the city! You will most likely see a few types of birds and plenty of wild flowers along the trail. After you get off the... More

Worthwhile to spend an entire day here.Begin at GG Bridge and walk the trail from the bridge to the Suoto Pool Ruins.You will be rewarded,especially on a clear day.Part of this trail is closed to bicycles and it would be good to plan ahead if you choose to cycle.The bike would better allow visits to China Beach,the Sea Cliff mansions,(and...

Stopped here on our Go Car tour. best views in the area. Some nice beaches just down the road. A bit of a drive or bike ride from downtown, but well worth it!!

This is a wild place on a windy day. Very interesting to see the remains of the pools and the bird life. The café is very busy but the chocolate chip cookies are 'to die for' as quoted by the bus driver.

This is a beautiful little hike around the golf course with fabulous views of the ocean. the trail is well maintained and the walk is not too demanding but provides a chance to stretch your legs. The Legion of Honor is there also and admission is included in the de Young ticket.

This is a quick hike near the Cliff house. It's usually very cold here in the spring/summer months, so it's wise to take layers.. (Jacket is a MUST.) Hat and scarves would be welcomed. The view is worth it. There are a few long flights of stairs, worthy of getting your heart pumping.

First off the area has spectacular views and they only get better the farther you hike. But the Sutro bath remnants look like ancient ruins. The whole site is neat. When you're there be sure to drive south around the corner to see the beach!

Gorgeous views, well maintained trail, right in the city but felt like a wilderness hike. Combines well with lunch at the Legion of Honor museum.This trail ends at the Sutro Bath/Cliff House area If you are really ambitious, the bay side of Golden Gate Park is quite close as well.
