Let’s take a fall hike along the coast of San Francisco. We’ll explore Sutro Heights, Sutro Baths, and Point Lobos, then head up the Coastal Trail to Eagle’s Point for fabulous views of the Golden Gate (fog permitting!).

Our route includes the Mile Rock Beach labyrinth, memorials to the Holocaust and the USS San Francisco, the art deco VA Hospital, and Fort Miley’s abandoned coastal defenses.

Where to Meet:

We’ll assemble at the Lands End Visitor Center.

(If taking Muni to Lands End, it is accessible via the 38 or 38R which starts at the new Transit Center and runs all the way out Geary to 48th Avenue. However, be sure to get on a 38 going all the way to 48th Avenue; some of them only go as far as the V.A. Hospital at 33rd Avenue and turn around there. Riders need to look at the destination on the front of the bus or ask the driver if he/she is going all the way to 48th.)

Leaders Note:

Bring water, snacks, lunch, dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. There are restrooms near our meeting area. Questions? If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or call him at 415-543-6771 x321.

  1. I couldn’t help but notice that– a bit ironically– many of these meet ups are not very close to public transportation. If there is anyone planning on participating in the Lands End walk that is willing to pick folks up from the closest Bart station (16th/Mission), I would be happy to sign up! Thanks!

    • The 38R Muni Line serves Lands End. If you like, I can ask folks signed up from the Berkeley area if they can offer a carpool.
