Lands End offers all the drama of windswept cypresses and cliff faces descending into the crashing ocean. Start at the parking lot by the Lands End Lookout (with a visitor center and café open Friday through Monday) near the ruins of the Sutro Baths—which are worth hiking down to for a quick ramble—and take the Coastal Trail heading east. The path involves steep staircases and brings you along the coastline to the Eagle’s Point Overlook, where you’ll catch incredible vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge.
