2.9 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Lands End Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Julien Bacal

Lands End is one of the best hikes in the city with great views of the coastline and the Golden Gate Bridge. Start either next to the golf course or closer to the beach near Sutro Baths.

The Lands End Trail is a fairly easy 3 mile hike along the coastline of SF. The highlights of the trail include access to China Beach, views of the Sutro Baths and the Golden Gate. This is a great hike if you're looking to explore the city or you want to get a fun hike in with scenic coastal views without having to cross the Golden Gate. It's also not too strenuous, making it a family-friendly hike. Keep an eye out as this path is also used by mountain bikers and trail runners.

Dogs are allowed here leash-free if kept under voice control, but leashes are recommended for the safety of your dog and others who use the trail.

Overall rating: 

This is a go-to hike for anyone looking to experience iconic San Francisco views with very little effort. This is more of a beautiful walk than a hike - many people do it with a coffee in hand. Perfect for families (of all ages) and out of town guests.

Great place to bring out of town friends or family if they have a little time for a long walk - not too difficult, has great views of the ocean and bridge. Would definitely recommend for a fun long afternoon, especially at dusk with some hot ramen afterwards :). Start at the Cliff House/ Ocean Beach so you can explore the small caves near the Sutro Baths.

Easy and mellow. Lots of people though on the weekends.
