Owner description: 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.

Lands End has many neat historical attractions as well as some terrific views. At the end of the parking lot is the San Francisco Memorial. This alone is worth a look. Next to the parking lot is a new visitor center, just up from the cliff house. Across Geary from the parking lot is a great park (Sutro) with history and views. Don't miss Lands End!

We enjoyed this trail on a beautiful August day. Nothing better when the sun is shining in SF! We hiked this trail with our 3 girls (3,8,9), as well as our 83 year old grandma. I would not consider this trail to be easy, but definitely doable for kids. Most of the trail is dirt, and there are some ups & downs, as well as rocky areas. There is an area with quite a stair climb (100s of stairs). Not too far into the trail, there is a set of stairs to the left. That will take you down to a gorgeous sandy beach area. We spent some time down there exploring and were able to see quite a bit of sea life. There are about 200+ stairs going down to the beach. We did bring our BOB jogging stroller on this trail, and were able to use it for most of the hike, the stairs being the only exception. We did leave the stroller tucked behind a tree at the stair area going down to the beach to save us from carrying it down this set of stairs. The other stairs we carried the stroller up and down. The views along this trail are gorgeous. Without fog, you will get a brilliant view of the Golden Gate. At the beginning of the trail, you will also see the Sutro baths, which are neat to see. Definitely stop in the visitor center for a map, and they are very helpful. We were very impressed with this trail. Parking is free which is unheard of in the city.

We rented some bicycles to ride around the bay area, and made a stop at Land's End.The views are just spectacular! It's really worth your while making a trip out to this area. You get different perspectives of the Golden Gate Bridge and bay area. Just beautiful.

We loved hiking in this area! You could forget that one of the biggest cities in the world is right outside the park. It was quiet, peaceful and very beautiful. I highly recommend it.

This walk was stunning! Right on the cliffs with lots of views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Bonus! You are aren't in the pack of tourists that surround the bridge. Thing to note, did not see any bathrooms on this trail, so plan ahead.
