LANDS END TRAIL

Where San Francisco - - Where Calendar -

As its name im­plies, this trail is lo­cated in the outer reaches of the city on the Pa­cific Coast, and it feels some­what like the edge of the earth. Start your jour­ney at the beau­ti­ful new Lands End Look­out vis­i­tor cen­ter, which out­lines the na­ture and his­tory of the area and houses a pol­ished gift shop and cafe. Then follow the well main­tained 3.5-mile out-and-back trail to post­card-wor­thy land­scapes. Jagged cliffs cov­ered in windswept cy­presses dra­mat­i­cally meet blue sea, with the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Head­lands in the dis­tance. If you have en­ergy to spare when you reach the end of the trail, keep walk­ing past the man­sions of the Sea Cliff neigh­bor­hood and take a de­tour to Baker Beach, a mile-long stretch of sand tucked be­low rugged hills with a fa­mous panoramic view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Back at the start­ing point, make the de­scent to ex­plore the Sutro Bath ru­ins.
