This scenic, popular trail to Eagles Point, part of the California Coastal Trail along the historic Cliff House Railway route, is both the land’s end and the gateway to San Francisco Bay. This hike is a showcase of shady cypress groves, rocky beaches, panoramic viewpoints, and interpretive panels about San Francisco Bay’s natural and cultural history. Easy access from the city and nearby residential neighborhoods, its proximity to the historic Cliff House, ample parking, and well-developed facilities at the Lands End View of Marin Headlands and Golden Gate Bridge Lookout Visitor Center make this trail a very popular family outing with locals and tourists. But somehow, even on a busy weekend, this rugged stretch of coastline with inspiring views up the headlands to the north remains an enchanting place with a sense of wildness.
