Land's End - lightimpressions

Land's End

A unique and sweeping vista of the Pacific entrance to the San Francisco Bay.

The trail in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area links the historic Sutro Baths and Lincoln Park with Fort Baker Beach close by. Views are stunning when the weather is clear, moody when the fog blows through, and downright ephemeral on those days when the fog drifts in and out.

Hidden treats await the adventurous and observant. Ship wrecks can be seen at low tides, a stone labyrinth, flocking pelicans at dusk, coyotes, and the Point Bonita Lighthouse across the Gate in the Marin Headlands. Access to the beach can be had via a few hundred step stairways at roughly midway at Seal Rocks Beach.

If you plan a visit the round trip is roughly 3 miles (out and back) with little to no elevation change (unless you head down to the beach). You can even ride a bike, but it is better to walk. Bring a jacket because temperatures are usually cool and the wind pretty consistently blows there.

Don't miss the Hidden Labyrinth at Eagle's Point!
