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

Great running path! It's mostly flat, had bathrooms and water (it's a few miles at least between the bathrooms, but not bad). For a long run I would recommend bringing a water if your own. Nicely shaded which makes it nice even in hotter weather. On Saturdays there's a lot of people on it, which makes me feel safe. I love how long it is! Perfect for those weekend long runs :D I would usually start the trail by Sac State and run up toward Folsom.

One of the most beautiful views.

I've been riding this trail since 1962

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

steep trek after the warning sign, but the views are well worth it.

nice moderate hike even though it says no dogs the dogs were everywhere very slippery near falls from mist nice hike

Great dynamic trail with a bunch of beautiful homes to look at during certain sections of the trail. Impossible to get lost and not too long or to short.

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.

Decent hike. Not really worth the $10 parking fee. Most of the hike is in the shade. Lots of people

Great trail! Yes, it goes through a neighborhood in spots but the houses and yards are gorgeous so no complaints. Made for some nice sight-seeing. There were definitely some challenging hills and technical parts of the trail. Great for Spartan/OCR or trail racing training. The weather was perfect and only saw one person the whole time. Trail is well maintained and well marked.

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!

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.

Um, this is Winchester Trail.

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.

SEPTEMBER/2018: Awesome day to hit this trail. The weather was perfect and it wasn’t as crowded like the last time. It’s about one and a half hours out/in trip. The waterfall/dam was so beautiful and there were plenty of rainbows.

My fiance and I planned to move back to his hometown of Sacramento. I had lived in Ohio all my life, and was pretty scared when I first came to visit Sacramento with him to see where we would live. The first time I felt relief and could envision myself living in Sacramento was when he took me to this trail. Lovely spot, beautiful river, always lots to see. Path is clean and well marked. Just took my parents here when they visited for the first time. Great trail, a must for anyone new to Sac.

Nearly got my left foot bitten off by a sea lion. Needless to say he won't be swimming straight for a while. Absolutely gorgeous trail, bring along sustenance to snack by the ocean and meditate.

Beautiful views. Nice for an easy stroll.

Just another great day for hike at Auburn area. Crowded on parking cars and on the trail. Nice view's of spilling dam water at the end . like this trail as exercise and nice surrounding of forest atmosphere. Recomend to others.

It was great hike. Almost all hike is by the water!

Beautiful trail with beautiful views. I’ve been here twice in 3 weeks. I love it. Good for children also.

Just a heads up "no dogs" sign at the trailhead, but you will usually see a few.

was very nice shaded with trees and paved.
