- Parking: I started and ended at Land's End Eagle Point. There's usually lots of spots along the road where I began.
- Views: beautiful!
- Traffic: there were a lot of people on a sunny Sunday afternoon. That, combined with the relatively narrow trails, made the walk slower than expected.

awesome hike. many things to see. very dog friendly!

Great hike with shade. Beautiful views along the coast. Came here on a Saturday morning before 10am and was able to find parking in the Lands End Lookout parking lot. After our hike, cars were waiting around for parking. Highly recommend.

Wonderful place. Relaxed easy hike. Better on weekdays

Gorgeous views. Do the leftmost path first for amazing views and then take the right path for the old fort wall and the hidden trail up to the cliffs and the graffiti houses. Spectacular and exciting!

I did this hike on my own, it was great. The weather was perfect and the views are outstanding. Totally doable, but an excellent work out.

Amazing historic trail going through the woods, grassy hilly pastures and along the coast. I parked on the highway and walked down and then on the way back took the matt Davis trail up and connected to old mine trail to get back to the dipsea. That was about 15 miles and worth it

Gorgeous views - definitely very busy but the scenery makes all the traffic worthwhile

Beautiful and relatively relaxed trail that goes inland and to the beach.

Wow! Started off surrounded by giant redwoods and Sequoias, ended surrounded by the ocean. A beautiful hike. Very challenging going up and over the mountain and lots of stairs in parts. Only went out...not back (that would have been a bit crazy for my family). Loved every second of this trail!

relaxing hike. such beautiful trees.

Easy hike but also easy to loose the trail.
But that’s also because I was distracted by the views. Stunning. Fun. Do it.

Amazing trail. Love the stair case and also the old base! Good for all types.

Amazing views. Around every turn was another incredible sight. This is a must do if you're in the area.

Pretty easy hike with nice views. Plenty of parking with public restrooms.

Beautiful views and a good variety of trails to mix it up.

Great easy hike for the weekend! Great views of the bridge.

Beautiful area just out side of San Francisco. It was breathtaking seeing the redwoods. Can get pretty crowded so I suggest arriving early.

Fun trail. The stairs were fine (novice-moderate hiker, here). Great views of the Bay.

Simply the most beautiful hike close to a major US metro in my opinion.

Majestic views, frog concert and sunset upon returning to the trailhead. First part is all up last part you get to cool down and be in the shade if you are hiking later afternoon. Spotted 2 coyotes at 30 feet.

The only way to the trail head we could find is through the main park entrance and then taking bridge number 4 and Ben Johnson trail up where it intersected with Dipsea trail. We followed the Dipsea trail sign after that but it looped and we noticed from Garmn navigation device that we were only a mile away from the car at some point. So we had an option of taking the road and coming back to the car or going back the same way we came in. So most probably we were on a sort of different route but still enjoyed climbing up and later descending in redwood forest as well as distance Pacific views from the top. Even came across a deer.
The trail was crowded and full of trail runners who ran despite the risk of tripping hazard. One of them ended up falling and bleeding...ouch
