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...more

My family and I hiked from here to the Golden Gate Bridge, though this location with spectacular views from the sutro baths were phenomenal. Stunning. Stunning. Stunning. This is my mental picture of Northern California!
The name says it all- you feel like you have arrived at the end of the road. Beautiful. And be sure to check iut all the pelicans that nest on the rocky outcroppings. Lock your vehicle and put valuables out of sight.
We hiked from the Golden Gate Park to Lands End and then from Lands End back to the Golden Gate Bridge. Very well maintained trails with surprisingly few people apart from locals jogging after work. Easy walk with incredible views.
You are never probably going to see a Lands End like this. This is well maintained. SF with its mystic fog that hangs over abnormally high trees can take you into a dreamy place at end of the world here.
For great photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and the bay drive to the upper carpark (not the one by Sutro Baths) and take a walk on the lower path way down 20-30 steps.
Some information panels provide the history but otherwise this...More

Good Evening Karen, I am thinking that the walk from the main parking lot for Land's End to the California Academy of Science in Golden Gate State Park is just about 4 miles and will probably take about two hours at a leisurely stroll. It could take a bit longer depending on how much sightseeing you do along the way. It is downhill to the beach and a minor steady climb going back to the east. You will climb about 250 feet over three miles which really is nothing. You have oceans, Windmills, Bison, Tea Gardens and more along the way to contend with your attention. I guess you could walk back to Land's End, or catch a cab for a nominal fee. Check maps for buses if you have a day pass. The walking route will be well worth your time and the sights you will see are very nice. I hope you do it and enjoy the experience. Cheers.
