Lands End Trail explores the historic Sutro Baths and offers brilliant view of the Pacific. A must see for any visitor to San Francisco. Lands End is the wildest, rockiest corner of San Francisco, a corner strewn with shipwrecks and a history of landslides. At the tip of Lands End is Point Lobos, named by the Spanish for its many lobos marinos (sea wolves); the barks of those sea lions, as they are called today, drifted up from the rocks below. The sea lions have since relocated to the calmer waters of San Francisco Bay. Trails at Lands End offer a cliff-top walk through dark cypress and open grass and 30-mile views up and down the California coast. The craggy headlands that border the Golden Gate have always challenged developers. The rocky exposed bluffs, often windswept and cloaked in fog, have hampered attempts to tame this corner of San Francisco. Despite the terrain, this section of the Coastal Trail was once a railroad bed, and the adjacent street, El Camino del Mark, once extended through Lands End. The two roads led to the Cliff House, Sutro Baths and Ocean Beach. Landslides eventually closed both routes.
Beautiful ... loved it!
Nice relaxing hike. Get there early in the day as parking fills up quick and busses come around 10am (we were there on a Sunday).
Great trail in San Francisco. Good spots for pictures. One of my favorite coast trails.
Running this trail is a great workout, especially with all those stairs. Plus, if you need motivation to go on those views just can't be beat! Perfect trail blend of beach, forest, hiking/ running and wasn't too crowed.
Great trail. It was perfect for me and my 10 year old daughter!
Beauitful view. Too crowded.
Great views .. Crowded .. But worth trying
Beautiful views of the Pacific. Very crowded area, but well worth the walk.
Easy and amazing views!
Gorgeous scenery and an easy walk if you stay on the main path. If you go to Mile Rock Beach there are lots of stairs down to the beach. Very cool. Love the views of the Golden Gate on a sunny day.
