This rocky coastal park reveals shipwrecks and hidden beaches. The most popular walking route here is Lands End Coastal Trail, which winds down to Mile Rock overlook. There, a rock labyrinth of 11 concentric circles overlooks the bay and—on a clear day—the Golden Gate Bridge. At the edge of the cliff, you'll find the ruins of Sutro Baths, a private swimming pool built in 1896 and destroyed by a fire in 1966. Today, the marshy site is stalked by herons and overgrown by grasses. South of Lands End, the wildflower-dotted Sutro Heights Park offers sweeping views of the Pacific. To the east, the sculpture-dotted Lincoln Park houses the Legion of Honor, a fine art museum within a gorgeous Beaux-Arts building.

One of the most gorgeous trails I've had the pleasure of walking on. It's beautiful views and winding pathways make it the most scenic trails in San Francisco. Just follow the signs for the coastal trail and let nature take its course.
