Crowded, nice walk and views. Some trails not shown on the maps are not open to the public and they’re fun to explore.

Easy-moderate covered trails. Really great for running!

Very popular. Beautiful but lots of people.

Great 1hr loop around the golf course for running or a flatter walk. It starts out on a narrow wooded path, but expect to also walk on the sidewalk, cross quiet streets, walk a wide unpaved service road, and hear the freeway for a few minutes. You’ll even pass Rob Hill Campground, which was fun to take a detour through. In many ways, the varied terrain keeps the walk interesting. You’ll need access to map to stay on course—it’s not clear for first timers. Not a heavily trafficked tourist hike.

If you have time, I suggest walking to the playground across the street from the golf club parking lot. The 5 min walk has some beautiful views of the presidio and there is additional free parking over there. If you wanted, you could add another 20-30 minutes by walking the loop.

Great walk. Somehow in hilly SF, there are a lot of flat nature hikes and walks. This one has more incline which is nice. I suggest walking there and back rather than walking the loop so you can enjoy the coastal breathtaking views instead of the road. We decided to not turnaround or take the loop and instead we kept walking to Baker Beach, then through the Presidio and finally into the Marina for lunch. It took about 2 hours 15 mins or 7 miles and my Fitbit recorded I burned 780 calories!

It was a blast and we were exhausted after, but I couldn’t believe all the fantastic views we had! After, we Lyfted back to our car, but we could have Scooted or Jump Biked because the ride was through the Presidio and neighborhood streets. Excellent trek!

Beautiful views of ocean and bridge and lots of fun landmarks to see. We did this hike as the loop, part of which is the road, and if we did it again, would stick to an out and back on the coastal trail- this is where the best views were and felt more like a hike (vs. a walk along the road). Detour to labyrinth/beach was worth the stairs!

Must do in San Francisco. Lands End is a unique stand out among the stunning west coast (obviously there are plenty of other amazing spots as well) that’s incredibly accessible.

Great place for great views. Friendly for hitting, jogging. Easy “hike” for most kids, but there are some steps that need to be navigated so some could struggle a bit.

Decent hike.

Love this app! Makes hiking easy and fun!

Can have some steep points that are closed depending on weather. viewing the old garrison areas is enjoyable and a nice place to sit for a snack.

Always a fun family hike and enjoy the beautiful views!

Always a fun hike to do! Scenic and a fun discovery each time. Go down the coastal trail and end up at China Beach! A must!

Chill well populated hike. Mostly flat. Take detour to beach

Views of Pacific and GGB, mostly within forest

Good in any weather, can get a fresh perspective on GGB.

Easy but spectacular views

Overall an okay hike, with a few interesting batteries to see but nothing out of this world

Probably the best trails for beginner mountain bikers. You can spend hours riding the trails. And most of the trails have good line of sight. You can see hikers with ease.

Had a great time hiking Land's End Trail and walking at the beach. This hike is fun and easy. We ate lunch at the Cliff House. Food was fine but I threw up after consuming 1 glass of alcohol. That must have been my body telling it did not want alcohol after a good hike.

Beautiful place

One of the most beautiful views.

Incredible wild trail and one of the best parts of San Francisco.

Definitely an easy hike! We started around 2pm and were done by 3:30pm and walked around the Mt Sutro loop. There are servers trails and you can get lost easily! Very confusing, you need a map if you want to follow the a trail. The historic trail is beautiful, and at some parts of it you have nice views of SF. But I wouldn’t go here for views, because there are other places with much better views of the city.

Beautiful views! Caught a gorgeous sunset towards the end of the hike. Includes some challenging stairs and climbing that could be an issue for some. Trail was a little crowded and loud at times, but the views were so worth it.

Nice little trail on the north western coast of the SF peninsula. Stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, a true oasis in the City that will give you a respite from all the hustle and bustle.

Nice open space on the edge of the city. While walking this trial came across Palace of Fine Arts which ended up being a stand out of my trip to San Francisco. Was a hidden oasis in the city after being amongst the towers in downtown for a week!
