    We park at Legion of Honor and walk to the trail. The trail is generally flat except for the stairs to the view points. It was cool and foggy when we went, the view is still beautiful! I would highly recommended!

    I hiked the Land's End Trail on 4th of July. It was foggy and cool. There was plenty of parking at 11 am. I was surprised that there weren't tons of people. Even though the day was not clear, the views were beautiful. There were families and dogs on the trail. Some areas are not for smaller kids due to narrow areas and lots of stairs. I will be back!

    It's hands down the wildest trail that courses through the terrain along the City's western edge. Rugged landscapes emerging from the Cityscape, you'll feel you've been transported far from San Francisco.

    My favorite out doors activity in San Francisco. Its a trail between baker beach and Ocean beach ending at the Sutro batch and the Cliff House. You get to see incredible views of the city, the golden gate bridge, and marin.

    If you're looking for beauty and a relatively relaxed walk, Land's End is the best bang for your buck in San Francisco. If you luck out and get a clear day, the views of the ocean and Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands will blow your brain. But it's even beautiful in the fog, with the ghostly cypress trees, the sound of the ocean breaking down on the rocks below you, and the tip of the bridge poking up on the horizon. While you're there, make sure to go down the stairs to old Sutro Baths and caves. It's really easy to get here, too - just take the 38 bus from Market Street or Geary and take it to the last stop.

    With Pacific Ocean shipwrecks visible in low tide and a rock-hewn meditative labyrinth, the 3.4-mile Lands End Trail is not your average hiking path. The trail is at the far edges of San Francisco's northwestern end, so the fog and wind can pick up quickly (especially in the afternoon), making this feel like even more of an adventure.

    Hidden SF! You will see the Golden Gate from a new perspective. Well worth the effort. Don't forget your camera!

    This is the main trail in the park but there are a lot of trails that branch off from it. It's very scenic as you'll be able to see Marin County, the Golden Gate Bridge, Point Bonita Lighthouse and a couple more spots along the trail. Parking is free and there's also a visitor's center (with restrooms!) to help you with your hike if needed. It's a fairly easy hike! Be sure to bring a bottle of water and a light jacket or sweater.

    Fantastic trail! Start by legion of honor and walk to Ocean Beach, then catch a bus back to your car/home

    Great walking trail with lovely views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean. Typically less mobbed than the Presidio, my SF friends tell me.

    Not a strenuous hike by any means. When you're here, you'll feel like you've stepped away from all the big city noise and realize how diverse the city can be.

Description

Take your dog for a walk, snap some amazing pictures, and enjoy beautiful scenery when you take a hike on the Lands End Trail. You can take some amazing pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge from an angle that many are not even aware of. You can stick to the trail but if you veer off of it, you are going to see hidden beaches that have decaying bunkers left over from World War II. Experience the best of Mother Nature by exploring the trails, forest, streams and beaches. You can also visit the small museum that showcases the works of local artists in the northern corner of the trail.
