Loved it. Great view, well maintained and very quiet

I would recommend this trail for a scenic run watching Golden Gate Bridge , there will be wind blowing so wear appropriate cloths

Very nice walk and green sanctuary in the city! Part of the trail was closed due to the fact some trees were being cut down

this is more of a dog park with a lot or almost all dogs off leash. very friendly but can be overwhelming to smaller dogs. The trails are fun and pretty easy to complete but the best part is the beach where you can find a whole bunch of sand dollars and shells.

Great trail- first two sections along the Southern end were my personal favorite, in large part due to the welcoming and awesome people along the way! Visitacion Valley Greenway was magical, as was the scenic but difficult portion through Forest Hills and Golden Gate Hikes. We got to the end at Lands End right at sunset- highly recommend!

Went for sunrise. Beautiful easy walk. Would recommend getting there at 630 and stay until 740am for sunrise viewing

Easy hike but very crowded. The road to get to the peak was more exciting but most people parked at the peak anyway.

Beautiful hike in the middle of the city. Trails are still a bit muddy from the recent rain; there's lots of deeply shaded areas so I imagine the trails are always a bit damp. Views are lovely, probably best enjoyed in the afternoon. On a weekday morning, had the place pretty much to ourselves (only saw one person). Some trails were rocky so watch those ankles.

Beautiful retreat within the bustle of San Francisco. Many winding trails through the eucalyptus trees - not great signage but it isn’t large enough to get truly lost.

A lovely, fairly gentle trail. Stunning views. A little muddy in places, and a fair few steps, but loved the hike.

Two sets of beautiful mosaic artwork on stair risers. Amazing view from the top

Great flat trail, easy walk, beautiful views. We decided to start out at Palace of Fine Arts. As we followed the trail we saw signs to go to the Presidio then across the Golden Gate Bridge, which we did instead of looping right back. Ended up at the border or Marin County, which felt like an achievement, then headed back to Palace of Fine Arts. This was a doable, stress-free round trip of seven miles with small breaks when needed.

Good dog friendly trail - great views of city and bay from a number of perspectives. Well maintained and signed. Parked in the Mansell lot near tennis courts.

Gorgeous views. A bit muddy, and quite crowded, but definitely worth it!

I loved hiking this trail. I started at the Sutro Baths and hiked to the Golden Gate. Absolutely gorgeous the entire way.

great way to fall in love with SF again

Let's be honest, it really doesn't get any better than Lands End Trail. The entire trail and its surroundings are simply magnificent. Views include the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge. I agree with the Yelpers that have stated that pictures and reviews just doesn't do this place any justice. You must walk the trail yourself to experience what beauty and nature is all about. This trail isn't long or even difficult. According to alltrails.com, the entire loop is only 3.5 miles. About 2 miles of the trail is on the edge or where the land ends. But it's not too close and it's safe. The trail is wide, shaded, and for the most part, it's flat. There are some inclines and stairs that can be tough if you decide to make it a workout. Otherwise, I don't consider Lands End Trail tough. It's more like nature walk. I have read that a lot of people consider Lands End Trail as one of the best hikes in San Francisco. In my experience, Lands End Trail is the most beautiful trail that I have ever be on. There's so much to do, see, and explore on this trail. From the lush & gorgeous landscape to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, Lands End Trail is amazing.

Trail allows for dog in single file to allow on coming traffic. Medium to light dog traffic (10-15 dogs crossed) - all owners were respectful of the tight trail and possible dog interaction/reactions. Lots of space to duck off trail to help mitigate dog-dog contact.
