Leave your Car at the Point Lobos Ave Parking lot and follow the Lands End and Costal Trail heading North. If you follow the Trail you will find amazing views at the Golden Gate, hear the waves crushing against the Cliff, and later on you will also get amazing views at the Golden Gate Bridge. You will also find some... More

This was the refreshment stop on our coach city tour. The cafe is in the gift shop, despite having quite a few staff the queue was long due to the physical layout. The choice was quite good, the driver recommended the chowder, but the prices expensive. $4 for a muffin. $8 for fresh fruit salad. The area is unspoilt and... More

My wife and I hiked Lands End and it was great. The other hikers were friendly and offered suggestions to those of us that look like hiking tourists. There is a public bathroom behind the Legion of Honor that I would suggest utilizing before your hike (if you start there). Throughout our hike we found view after amazing view of... More

I have been to this trail over 100 times and take all my out of town guests here for an activity. It is the only trail were you feel like you are actually hiking in all of san francisco. And the best part is the view of the golden gate bridge and beautiful cliffs were you can hear the crashing... More

a nice stroll on any day, gets a bit crowded after 10 on weekends so come early. many folks stop walking at the 2nd overlook where the trail turns to dirt though. I love taking my dog for a run here on any weekday, it is never too crowded, but avoid sunny weekend afternoons if you don't like marching along... More

Historically interesting - home of the Sutro baths at the turn of the century - and dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean make this a really fun place to visit. The well groomed trails are of easy/moderate difficulty and in an hour you can see the whole area which includes a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. There is also... More

We visited Land's End after finishing up at Golden Gate Park; if you park at Ocean Beach (free) you are located optimally between both locations. The views were really beautiful, especially once you turn the corner and see the Golden Gate Bridge. Very easy trails and handicap accessible if you don't go down to the Sutro Baths; we skipped them... More

Wonderful way to spend part of your day & really experience the SF coast while getting some history & some exercise! Great, clean bathroom facility @ the start. The walking is not a steep hike. There are LOTS of OPTIONAL stairs which get you into different views & right down to the Pacific. Terrific views all along the trail, we... More

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