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.

great hike near the city with lovely views of the Golden Gate Bridge, access to Mile Rock Beach & Sutro Baths. The only downside is the parking. It's tough finding parking on the weekends, especially when it's a nice day out. I recommend going on a weekday to avoid crowds & wasted time trying to find parking.

It was an 'easy' trail. Make sure you take the stair cases and follow the cliffs for the most rewarding views

Did half the hike then hooked into another trail. Beautiful but slightly short.
