Traveler advice

Getting around

Bike Kiosk behind Safeway 48th & Cabrillo St. By Safeway.

Light windbreaker, comfortable shoes.
Don't miss

Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge!

Entrance to these hiking trails are in the rear of the parking lot going into Land's End Visitors Bureau (closed due to COVID19) Marked signs and map up steps to trails. I have lived here for over 50 years. Please Do Not Go Off the Marked Trails under any circumstance. All along our beautiful beaches lie dangerous undertows and sneaker waves catching in land visitors off guard.. Enjoy the surroundings and the views. Stay Safe!
