Amazing hike ending with a beautiful, Californian, cliffside beach.

Beautiful hike that includes histrionic elements along the Nike missile site and the gun battery.

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.

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!

Sundays are quite busy, but Mondays this trail is nearly empty. There are a lot of wildflowers and it is currently early April. beautiful trail.

You’ll park in the neighborhood then walk up a long driveway to the trail. Starts off steep, ends steep on the way back. Moderate hike overall. The fog was rolling in and laying perfectly on the canyon and when we arrived to the beach it was perfectly sunny! gotta love Mt Tams micro climates :) beautiful day!

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

Easy walk along mostly paved trail with breathtaking scenery at every step and turn making the windy day a worthy one! Beautiful on a 60 degree day with lots of mist and wind. Saw a salamander walking along the path! Watch out for our little amphibian friends! “California orange belly newts!”

Really nice trail. Parking is easy and you may even run into a cow or two on the trail :) Very easy hike.

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

The path is mostly paved so it’s more of a walk than a hike! But beautiful views and we went on a warm day so the beach was so comfortable

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

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

Great trail , beautiful views , other trails you can take for more scenery , love the coast views

This was a good trail with a stroller. The kids (5 and 3 years old) had a lot of fun finding beautiful pebbles in a streamlet near the ocean. They are excited to go back!

Really neat trail! Beautiful cliffs for the ocean waves to break on. Gorgeous views of the bay. Enjoyed the trees that looked like they had been trimmed and were cleaning up after.

Easy loop, great view, best to go on a weekday though if you can.

Short trail, good for kids, our kids enjoyed picking fennel leaves and sour grass, and they loved gallivanting on the beach.

Great for a quick jog or a sunset stroll. Amazing views.

Not dog friendly. Drove out here to find a sign that says no dogs. Super disappointed as it looked really nice.

beautiful.

Pretty easy trails. Lots of side trails you can take with wonderful views of the bridge and the bay.

Easy to moderate hike with great views. Various steep hill paths that can make this more challenging.
