A little muddy at the beginning. Lots of options on which direction you want to go , I wouldn’t say easy because I think it would be difficult for some children it can get steep. Very beautiful views although windy so dress appropriately.

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

Quick, easy hike. Great views of the lake at the top. Snow shoes and poles were helpful but not necessary.

Really fun hike! You get a little of everything - rolling hills, rocky areas, and the greatest ocean view. I went midday on a Thursday, and it was not crowded at all - for the last 1/2 of the loop, I only saw three other people.

It’s rated as easy, but I would categorize it as moderate. I went on the first clear day after a few days of rain, so the ground was pretty muddy and there was a ton of loose rocks covering the few steep inclines. Some trail areas were non accessible due to huge puddles so I re-routed a couple times and made a few wrong turns along the way. Definitely added a little more adventure to the hike, which was fun!

I parked in the Mori Point parking lot. It’s kind of small (only space for like 6 cars), but I think it’s the best starting point to the hike (rather than the start/end marked on the map.

It is SUPER windy, so make sure you bundle up with layers! And make sure your phone doesn't fly out of your hand when you're checking the AllTrails app, haha!

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!

This is a short but steep hike, well marked trailhead at the base. Went on a January morning, and it had been in the 60s the days before. That resulted in the base of the trail and the entire upper 1/3 of the trail being solid ice. There was some scant snow to use as well as small boulders and scrub brush to grab onto. I saw two people coming down before me and then 3 more coming up after. Everybody was slipping and had a fall or two. I was glad to be by myself and not have my dogs for they would have pulled me right down!
At the top is an utterly stunning and secluded vista of the entire lake and surrounding mountains. It was simply breathtaking. A little treasure. Be careful on windy days, it was gusting over 50-60 mph up there and nearly blew me (a quite substantial woman) right off the edge. It was quiet and I spent a lovely 20 minutes just enjoying the view.

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.

Nice flat hike, with beautiful black sand beach access at the end. Also has an alternative route that's more difficult.

Did this finishing just before sunset and the views from the Knob were spectacular and better than the first viewpoint, although both are indeed great.

A fairly short/compact trail, this still packs in the sights, and it was nice to look over and see the Capitol Gorge trail from earlier in the day (nowhere near as good as this!).

Finished this up and down in 2h40 with two bars and no water. A few sips for getting down would have been nice, but the weather was not hot at all.

Incredible views. Lots of cairns to follow. Check out the view of Hickman Bridge on the way.

15 minutes to get to the top, found parking easy on a Tuesday afternoon. A lot of small families and people younger than 5. Great lunch spot

Quiet and peaceful on this Wednesday afternoon.

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.

Great trail with a killer hill or two, it connects to a flat trail that goes down to Rockaway beach. I enjoy it.

Beautiful place

One of the most beautiful views.
