Situated on a rocky and windswept point at the tip of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area lies the beautiful Lands End. With great views of the Bay and the magnificent Golden Gate, this park-within-a-park offers those who visit its dusty trails an unparalleled experience unlike any other in San Francisco.
Lands End has several hiking trails, the longest of which is an easy three-mile round-trip hike from Point Lobos to Eagles’ Point. You’ll pass the ruins of the Sutro Baths and the USS San Francisco Memorial, as well as getting some great shots of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Along the way, be sure to keep an eye out for the rocky labyrinth, located on a small plateau along the way, and, conservatively speaking, one of the most beautiful spots on earth. Well worth the time and effort to see all that Lands End has to offer, easier hikes can also be had by parking closer to the point itself.
