fun trail under 3 miles but has a decent incline to make up for it. good if you're interested in a quick one. not very crowded after 10:00am. dog friendly.

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.

Such a beautiful hike. Brings lots of water and snacks and/or lunch that you can eat at the falls.

Beautiful place

One of the most beautiful views.

I will start with advice, if you want the best trip to the falls check the SF tides chart. Try to get to the falls 2 hours before or after low tide, any other time there will be no beach to see the falls from, it will all be water. And you will have to stay on the rocks.
Also from the top of The falls to the bottom is very sharp loose shale rock you are on you butt going down and must use your hands and knees going up, with shorts your knees could be cut up.

The trail itself is great, it goes from hundreds of feet up above the water to completely shaded by the trees.
Not much uphill at all

Beautiful hike with shade along the way. A long hike at 13-14 miles but so worth it. Take some snacks to enjoy the beach once you arrive ! It’s a busy hike but not too many people. Parking gets full very quick so unless you want to hike a couple more miles , get there early to get parking.

Busy but not too crowded. Trailhead parking is definitely packed by mid morning on the weekends. This is a fun one!

Nice uphill climb with a great view at the top! It was super dry, so no waterfall. But super pretty nonetheless!! ♥️

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

Fantastic Hike, getting to the Beach to stand below the falls is a MUST!!

A short and sweet hike that meets all the criteria when you're looking for something simple.

It is not too strenuous but has a few fun parts that'll get your heart rate up. The view isn't breathtaking, but very refreshing. It's not too crowded, nor is it desolate.

Great place for a short afternoon hiking that doesn't need too much preparation.

Absolutely beautiful place! So glad somebody on the trail let me know where the turn off was. I’m pretty sure I would’ve missed it. I will definitely come back and plan to bring my bathing suit so I can jump in the water at the end!

That's a nice hike in point rayes . we did on weekend Oct 27. was a lot of hikers but still more then enough space for everyone. Beautiful green scenario feels like its spring but its almost November. Amazing almost clear all day. pretty views of ocean shore and breeze, nature lakes ,and waterfall by the shore. Recomend to try and enjoy what you love to do.

Great hike! Beautiful forest trees and gorgeous views. We misted the waterfall trail and had to go back and use the map to find it. Path to the waterfall is tight and at the end is climbing down the hill holding on to the big rocks on the sides. Was kind of scary for me but all worth it! Will go back again...!

Nice hike. But, only some of it was shaded and watch out for the bikers.

That last descent down to the beach, and then back up again was a bit scary for this fat man, but was well worth it in the end.

So gorgeous! Went on a Sunday a few weeks back got to the parking by 9 and barely anyone so the hike and beach were basically to ourselves. We did the short cut and climb is hard. I brought gloves which helped.

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.

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!

Pretty coastal views at the beginning and a surprisingly beautiful waterfall that drops right into the ocean at the end; not particularly strenuous, but there are some good opportunities to scramble down rocks by the falls to the beach. The trail to the falls from the Coast Trail is not an official trail, though the beginning of the trail was marked by an arrow on the Coast Trail at about the 4 mile mark. There is a lot of poison oak on the side trail, so long pants/sleeves are recommended.

Hiked with my girlfriends and the views were incredible.

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.

Beautiful coastal hike with a very rewarding waterfall at the end. It's an easy hike but still a great workout. I went on a weekday and arrived around 1030A and there were only 2 other cars in the parking lot. I pretty much had the whole trail to myself. There's lots of shades which is a plus on warm days. I didn't pay attention and missed the left to the falls but luckily since I was checking the GPS on the app, I caught it quickly. I noticed there a set of blue colored rocks to mark that left turn. Keep an eye out for that! The tide was kinda high today (10/11) and I was a wimp to walk on the beach but when I saw other people do it, I was game and took off my shoes. It actually wasn't that bad. I really love this hike!

Such a beautiful trail!! I hiked it alone on a moderately busy Sunday afternoon. It was the perfect combination of ease and difficulty for me. Very straightforward to follow along the path, and when you come to a fork in the trail it is marked properly. There are a few decent sized rocks along the way to stop and hang out to take a short break.

Wonderful hike!
Early October, Sunday morning, got there at around 7:30 and the parking was halfway full. Very windy, lots of shades, waterfalls was only dripping water. Descending first then ascend when going back to the parking.
Paid the fee for $10 (fee is only $8, but didn’t have change, self pay in the envelope)
Definitely come back for camping overnight!
