The Coastal Trail at Lands End Trail San Francisco is a gorgeous spot for walking, but most visitors to the city don’t know it’s there. Lands End is easy to get to, easy to park, and much less crowded than the more well-known parks and beaches.

The northwest corner of San Francisco is a rugged stretch of Cypress forest, bordered by cliffs plunging 200 feet to the sea below. It guards the narrow ocean channel leading to the Golden Gate Bridge and the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The Coastal Trail is walkway that starts just above the Cliff House, and then winds in and out of the woods and along the edge of the bluffs, and ends in a ritzy residential area (Sea Cliff) near China Beach.

There is a short paved stretch near the beginning, but most of the trail is dirt and rocks, with a couple of steep stairways. Mostly mild, but moderately strenuous in a couple of places. The trail is about 1.5 miles long; a leisurely walk one-way takes about an hour.
