Lands End Reviews & Ratings
It's right by the water, nice easy hike. Great views of the bay and Pacific ocean. If you're lucky you might see a whale. But I am not lucky.
Very nice view. Good times with some good people. It was a little warm and then quickly cooled down once the sun set. I would enjoy going again. There was a lot of stairs and steep hills but it was definitely walk down them when I show up again.
This was the start of our hike. A new visitor center was a good place to learn the history and free maps are available. Just north and west of the parking lot is the Sutro Baths. From there, we hike on the Lands End and Coastal Trail which is flat and easy trail. Along the path you can reach the USS San Francisco Memorial. If you want to go to the Labyrinth and Mile Rock Beach, you'll need to take the stair steps. Worth the trip down for gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge. We continued on to Eagles Point, where the trail ends on Lincoln Hwy. Be sure to visit the Legion of Honor and The Holocaust Memorial.
One of the best spots to soak in the Golden Gate bridge scene in peace and less crowd. Great trail as well, if you like to walk around and close to The Holocaust Memorial. One can easily spend half a day around here. Recommendation: carry your food and water / drinks. You can also take a walk in the posh Sea cliff area and naturally make your way to Bakers Beach. We went to The Holocaust Memorial however it was shut so we walked till the Lands end lookout and sat there for a bit before venturing into the Sea Cliff area and back to Pier 39 via Bus
My go to spot when I want a quick satisfying hike. It has bits of inclines and lots of steps that get you to sweat a bit. The weather is always a bit foggy but it's perfect for me. Plenty of nice views and lots of tourist and people so you'll always see people admiring the view and smiling at you.
