Lands End: San Francisco's Wild Coast

San Francisco, United States

Experience hosted by Ben

  1. 3 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

Escape into nature and fresh air! Enjoy the quiet trails and footpaths of Lands End. We'll follow the wind to the wild northwest coast of San Francisco, where around every turn you're treated to world-class views of the Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate Bridge. I love this loop trail fronting the rugged, surf-lashed coastline for its natural and truly remote feeling, and its abundant wildlife. I'll share insights about the natural habitat of magical places like Sutro Baths that were the center of community in past. As we continue along, we'll take time to reflect on nature's beauty and San Francisco's rich landscape with a picnic stop on Mile Rock Beach or on the grounds of the elegant Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park. To me, this is the perfect place to have a true San Francisco locals experience.

If the date you want is not available, fully booked or the wrong time of day, please contact me and I might be able to accommodate your request. You can reach me via Airbnb direct message or by e-mail at sanfranciscocoastwalk@gmail.com.

This refreshing walk is also ideal for corporate groups and team building outings and can be customized especially for your group!

Other things to note: We meet at the Lands End Lookout Visitor Center. Public bus transportation from downtown SF is available but the best way to get there is by Uber, Lyft or by car (free parking available.)

I'm a SF native and the co-founder of a nature walking tour company, Coastal Walkers. San Francisco Bay's natural coastline is my passion and I believe the best way to enjoy it is on foot. On this refreshing 5.5 mile-long walk, we'll explore Lands End, one of San Francisco's most iconic parklands set high above the northwest coast of the city, with views of the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate coast and beautiful beaches, one of which we visit during the walk.

Note: If the walk is not on the calendar or fully booked, please contact me and we might be able to accommodate you. Great for team outings too!

This amazing slice of San Francisco coast brings us from the ruins of historic Sutro Baths and Sutro Park to the Coastal Trail, where we follow woodsy paths high above the water's edge to rugged Mile Rock Beach for a picnic and wild ocean views.

I am so glad I went on this hike/tour! I'd been doing a lot of solo hikes and walks on this trip, but it's so great to know you're seeing all the best spots that you can sometimes overlook if you're not familiar with an area. Despite it being a foggy day, the route Ben took us on was absolutely gorgeous, and very varied, from cliffs, to down in the Sutro bath ruins to a beautiful little cove to deeper in the forest. It was a good length and not too difficult or too easy. Beyond the hike itself, Ben was so friendly and relaxed and I learned so much -- from the animals and plants we saw, to a bit about the indigenous people who originally lived in the area, to shipwrecks and to more recent SF history. I wish I had time to do another of Ben's tours!

Ben's knowledge and passion for Land's End is evident in every area we explored. The area itself is beautiful to look at but knowing and understanding the phases of its history make it even more special. You will get a workout going up some of the accents but it is well worth it in the end. We will certainly go on another tour with Ben the next time we are in SF.

Definitely a must do experience. Ben is so knowledgable about the place, it’s history and how events have shaped up the place. This trail is breathtaking and Ben will make you explore all the hidden trail spots. Highly recommend!

Ben was absolutely phenomenal at helping me go to all the right locations on my land end tour. I would highly recommend this to anybody that really wants to get the whole 9yard experience when traveling to San Francisco or wanting an experience that they will remember.

I have walked around Lands End on my own but never would have learned the history and went hidden places on my own. This tour brought this area real life and personalization to me.

Ben was a fantastic hiking guide! He was very accommodating to our schedule which I really appreciated. He has a lot of knowledge of the area and the hiking route we took I never would have figured out on my own. At many locations he shared history and insight to the geography and landmarks. Ben was fun to talk to as well. We highly recommend this experience!
