Having read some rather negative reviews about the price of the car park and the commercialisation of Lands End we were in two
minds whether to bother going. But we took the advice of one reviewer ( thanks) to park in Sennen Cove and walk the coastal path. This was great - despite the cloud and mist and the fact we couldn’t see anything - this just added to the mystery and at least we could hear the sea ( 1st positive reframing). When the Lands End ‘experience’ loomed out of the mist it was a relief to discover we were not actually lost on moorland, never to be seen again. Then we spied the much maligned photographer doing his stuff and whilst we didn’t indulge, it was entertaining to watch and try and work out which of the 3 names belonged to the dog...
The entertainment/retail/food area made me wonder if it was modelled on Niagara Falls ( anyone who has been there will know what I mean). But we enjoyed a coffee whilst waiting for the mist (not) to lift before walking back to Sennen Cove on a somewhat more populated coastal path than on our way over.
Overall a very enjoyable few hours despite the inclement weather!

Beautiful location with stunning views! This is a great place to enjoy nature and get away from the hustle & bustle of the city and crowded tourist spots. A peaceful hiking trail runs through the forest and along the coast for a couple of miles, just note that it doesn't loop, so plan accordingly. We took an Uber to the Sutro Baths, hiked the coastal trail and then took another Uber back to Fisherman's Wharf when we reached the end. Beautiful scenery and excellent views of Golden Gate Bridge offer lots of opportunities for photos!

Spectacular views all along the trail. The trail is not difficult. Currently parking is free and restrooms & visitor center is closed due to covid 19 restrictions but the trail itself is open. There is a mobile restroom & not very clean. Parking is limited and gets filled up during the day. you may have to wait till a parking spot becomes available unless you get there early morning

This trail winds along the coast on the western edge of the city. You can get great views of the city, Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, Sutro Baths and plenty more. Definitely worth checking out.

If you go to San Francisco, please make sure you put on your walking shoes and get out to Land's End. Everyone imagines the best view of the Gold Gate Bridge would be from the Presidio, but in fact, on Lands' End, surrounded by forest and standing above soaring cliffs, you get a picture postcard view of the Golden Gate and the Bay in general. It's just a spectactular piece of Nature right in the heart of the city which begs to be explored.

That morning, it was a little cold and windy in San Francisco.
Nonetheless we decided to 'hit' the ocean in order to capture the Golden Gate from another point of view.
The scenery was breathtaking, very dramatic and beautiful.
It was cloudy with spots of sun.
The clouds were so low that they seemed to touch the top of the trees.
We walked and walked. So many beautiful trails with some of the most amazing view of the Bay from a different part of the city.
Wow. Magnificent.
It is certainly better to go there with friends, because you will be watching something spectacular but it can it can be a little desolate at times, if you don't feel comfortable being alone in the woods.
We were able to spot the Golden Gate in the distance. It was a vision of great beauty.
We will go back one day.

You get great view of Golden Gate Bridge, Pacific Ocean and Marin Headlands. It has amazing trails and you can walk down to Sutro Bath upper and lower lookouts. lands End had slots if instinctive tall majestic trees. Within Lands End, you have trails access to Miles Rock Beach, Labyrinth, Eagle lookout Points, USS San Francisco Memorial , Legion of Honor, Holocaust Memorial and Lincoln Park.

You you come late afternoon, you can catching amazing sunset. It’s a bit chilly with sea breeze and wind and temperature dips toward evening, so bring along a sweater or a jacket.

You take Muni bus 38R, 18 to get here. Lands End have nice maintained trails if you want to bring baby or toddler along with you, suggest you not bring strollers if you intend to go all the way down to Mile Rock beach or lower Sutro Bath, since there are steep steps. This is truly a great destinations for stunning views and must sees.

We reached the Land’s End area easily by Muni bus and were lucky enough to walk the higher trail on a beautiful day with clear skies. A lovely walk on tree-lined paths with unspoilt beaches to visit below. Definitely the best views of Golden Gate Bridge, Marin County and the bay itself. One of the nicest days spent during our stay in the city.

Beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. You don’t want to miss this. You can walk on the sand or on sidewalk. There are plenty of structures for great views from above. Felt safe, though there seems to be many signs about people breaking in to cars all over the city. Lock everything in your trunk.

Start your walk at the visitor's center to orient yourself to the area and wild life. I often see hawks here. Walk from the north of the parking lot along beautiful trails. I recommend going down to Mile Rock beach and then on you way back up take the trail to the left to the point with a labyrinth. You will see lots of pelicans too.
