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

One of the most beautiful views.

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

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.

Nice open space on the edge of the city. While walking this trial came across Palace of Fine Arts which ended up being a stand out of my trip to San Francisco. Was a hidden oasis in the city after being amongst the towers in downtown for a week!

Pretty foggy day last Thanksgiving weekend but still beautiful. Lots of people, but that was to be expected.

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.

Started at Lands End and just kept going. Beautiful views of the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge. Recommend that you bring water, snacks, sun screen and a hat. It was cool in the breeze and warm in the sun. Lots of people and bikes as you get closer to the bridge.

Easy trail suitable for all ages. Catch a view of the Golden Gate Bridge on sunny days.

An easy flat urban walk along the beach from the SF bridge to the marina. Views of all sorts of activities going on on the water and the beach.

This is more of a dog park than a trail. Great if you like dogs. To be avoided if you don’t like dogs or are running.

Curious urban section in between what is essentially 2 trails. Nice, long walk otherwise.

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.

gorgeous views. lots of sand and dogs

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.
