Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web
Covering the northwesternmost corner of San Francisco, Lands End lets you enjoy the outdoors and gives you insight into the city’s history. The park offers easy hiking and cycling trails, picnic areas, and views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean. The treacherous waters of the Pacific have been the scourge of many mariners, and during low tide, you can see shipwrecks dotting the coastline. The trails take you to a memorial dedicated to the USS San Francisco, one of the most decorated battleships of World War II, and the ruins of Sutro Baths, once the world’s largest swimming pool complex. Consider dressing in layers, as the weather close to the ocean can be chilly. Fog can sometimes obscure the views.

  • Lands end is a very beautiful and relatively quiet part of San Francisco (incl. Beach). A bicycle tour in the direction of Crissy Field is very strenuous and less to recommend (very steep parts). Should you bring sufficient condition, then it's worth in any case.

  • It's a beautiful place to stroll and watch the sunset, but it's pretty any time of day. I took some beautiful photos there. 
  • Land's End is at the western end of Geary Blvd. and can be easily reached via the 38 bus. There is a very nice visitors' center with bathrooms and a very nice gift shop. From there, you can walk south...  read more »
  • Enjoy your sunset here when the fog doesn't roll in. After the new update to the area, it's quite a pleasant place to go relaxing, seeing Sutro Bath, enjoy the ocean view, etc.
  • Very pretty hike with beach views, but a tourist attraction and a bit crowded for my taste. Hike can be done by anyone capable of walking a mile. It is a short walk and the path is not at all difficult or steep. Note that temperature here is significantly cooler than other parts of SF due to proximity to Ocean. Bring a sweater.
  • One of my favorite places in San Francisco. Have been going there since I was 10 years old. A beautiful place to walk or run... Or just sit and enjoy. Alone or with friends and family, this is iconic.
  • One of my absolute favorite spots in SF. It has amazing views! A photographer's gift. The backdrop is the Golden Gate Bridge. A small stone labyrinth on the ground. You can hike the trails, go to Sutro Baths, Ocean Beach, and Golden Gate Park. You can do all of it. Take water and snacks. Or start at Devils Teeth Bakery and try their delicious and famous breakfast sandwich then head down to the beach, which is two blocks down. Then start your hike walking up Ocean Beach until you reach the lighthouse. Then go down to Strong Baths, to little cave, back up on the trails, get to Lands End and enjoy!!!
  • One of the best trails in California. Well organized and well maintained. Changing spectacular view every moment. Must do for everyone. Relax and enjoy
