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. PutLands End into our San Francisco holiday maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The views are pretty but the climbing is not for the faint of heart. Go prepared as there is no water, restrooms or refreshment along this long trail.

  • Interesting historic park with great views of the ocean and the city of San Francisco. The store has some interesting facts about the area as a public bath area. The walk down is fairly easy. The parking lot is large but there are warnings about not leaving valuables in view so take precautions. A fun visit and worth a trip.
  • One of the best trails on the north western corner of the most beautiful city in America! Lands end is a relatively moderate trail which gives you magnificent views of the mighty Pacific Ocean as well as the Golden Gate Bridge. Would recommend sparing 2-3 hours to complete the trail. Tip- Make sure you do not leave any valuable items in your vehicle while parking.
