Packed. About a 1/3 of people without masks, more with them, but not wearing them on their face. It’s gorgeous and an easy walk, well marked, and partially paved so understandably busy. But on narrower parts, especially stairs, it got very crowded and was not possible to maintain distance. On stairs to labyrinth we passed group after group, maybe 30 people total without masks and we only made it first tier before we threw in the towel.

Highly trafficked. Paved paths. Dog friendly. Astonishing views. Bring a picnic blanket in case the mood strikes for a picnic by the beach.

Went to the City today to try and avoid the heat. Why is it that when it is above 75 degrees in SF it FEELS like it's 110 degrees??? Anyway, planned to hike up to Coit Tower but it was already over 80 so we went across town to Land's End by Sutro Baths, where it was around 76. Hiked along the cliff trail and stopped for lunch at the Eagles Point lookout, then went down to China Beach where there are public restrooms available. Made our way back in the early afternoon and it was definitely warmer on the sunny uphill stretches!

Several sets of steps. A great view of the bridge in good weather.

Hiked with Cara and Ted starting at Sutro Baths and going over to the Seacliff Neighborhood, then circled back to the car. Had lunch beneath a Monterey Cypress grove with a blue-sky view and the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.

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.

Nice walk along the bay. Enjoyed another view from a different perspective of the Golden Gate bridge. Hiked down to the ocean at Eagle point rock.
