Always a fun family hike and enjoy the beautiful views!

This is my third time hiking in the area and each time I see something new. This is a great workout with stairs and a good mix of ascending/descending, all with a great view. This is also one of the shorter mileage hikes that features the ridge and the beach.

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

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.

Don’t go on this hike without hiking poles as climb is pretty steep and on return you will need them for sure.

All paved (for better or worse), nice views, good work out.

Unfortunately, lots of air traffic noise pollution (right by the airport).

Great hike with great views of golden gate! Make sure to stop by Battery viewpoint! You fee like you are touching the bridge. The beach at the end is awesome! There were a few people there which was super nice :)

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.

Pretty foggy day last Thanksgiving weekend but still beautiful. Lots of people, but that was to be expected.

This trail is beautiful! Lots of very steep stairs. At the parking area resides the Nastiest port-o-potty I have ever been in, and I work construction!

Fun easy little hike

Great mixture of shade and sun, and has a fantastic secret bathroom at one of the campus buildings. Truly gorgeous greenery along well-maintained trails. Dog friendly. Keep an eye out for poison oak and roots that cause uneven footing.

Great City trail. Don’t go beyond any ropes as the cliffs are very dangerous. On a clear day the views are amazing.

Be sure to go past Geary Street to Sutro park for another quick walk.

Easy trail suitable for all ages. Catch a view of the Golden Gate Bridge on sunny days.

My favorite backyard hiking area! Easily end up with 15-20 miles. Coastal scenery is top notch, especially sunrise/sunset hikes. Lots of challenging hills to choose from. Great day hike

Love the views of the hills & Bay Area. The hills give you a great workout. Interesting to see the Nike Missle site and learning about the history. I'd definitely do this again and hopefully keep hiking down to the Farallones Trail. Love the smells of the nearby plants and eucalyptus trees.

Beautiful views. Also, great to visit to watch sunset. It’s very easy, so you don’t have to wear hiking shoes etc. Great to bring friends / family visiting out of town. Check the weather before going, there is no point going there when foggy.
