About
At the northwestern corner of San Francisco, there is a series of stunning views at every turn in this wild and windy trail. Hillsides of cypress and wildflowers, views of shipwrecks and access to the ruins of Sutro baths, a San Francisco specials memory.

It is a trail for hiking and trekking and has good viewpoints for the Golden Gate. The landscape there is gorgeous and allows beautiful pictures.

It's a photographer's paradise. A rugged and dramatic escape at the tip of San Francisco, perfect for nature lovers and sightseers alike. Explore a network of trails.

The Pacific Ocean crashing against the cliffs. Be prepared for the wind, dress with something warm. The trails can be uneven and rocky, so wear sturdy shoes.

Far from the filth and homeless commonly portrayed on Fox news, which does exist in pockets of the city, at the Northwest corner of the city is where our spectacular natural setting is on full display. Rugged sea cliffs pockmarked with hidden nooks and crannies, this area is popular with locals and tourists alike. Do be aware that at times you may come across nudity or people engaged in sexual activity if you walk far off trail. This has long been a place for semi secret trysts, less so in recent years than in the more Bohemian times.

A close second to Fisherman’s wharf in terms of visitors, this 2 mile trail from Eagles Point to the USS San Francisco is on the top ten of San Francisco must dos.

Along the way there are lots of scenic overlooks to taste the sea air and catch your breath. Interpretive signs tell stories of the wildlife, geology, natural and human history. Did I mention the Golden Gate Bridge views?

If, you can, I dare you to keep pace with the multiple barges, freighters, and cruise ships.

I recommend for families and anyone with a modicum level of fitness. There is one staircase otherwise terrain is fairly level.

This was a lovely area to stop and take it all in. Very quiet when we were there and a little cool off the water. Hope to visit again soon.

This was my absolute favorite part of San Francisco when we were in town for vacation. It has great trails and great lookout points. I would highly recommend it if you're traveling to SF and looking for things to do!

Well I would have loved to given 5* but the parking charges are just an absolute rip off to the max!!!!!!!!!! We wanted to visit here on the way back for about 45 mins, only to find the minimum parking charge is a staggering and outrageous £6!
I know you pay more by the sea but this is an absolute disgrace!!!!!!!!

The actual lands end is good and views phenominal, just the parking spoilt it for us!
