Lands End Trail San Francisco
Some hotspots include beaches, caves, rocks, and bay-side paths. You can hike, sightsee, do yoga, walk your dog, paint a picture of the bridge, and do tons of other stuff.
It’s amazing that you can drive 15 minutes out of the city and be in this place. It feels like you are in the jungle or something, and then you pop out and boom there’s the Golden Gate Bridge popping out of the fog. The trail if you take it all the way is about 1.5 miles, so about 3 miles round trip. It’s super easy to walk, although there are a couple sets of stairs.
Rocky terrain and rich cultural heritage are what await you at San Francisco’s Lands End. The park forms a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and history buffs alike. The park boasts a number of lookout points that offer stunning views of the shoreline, city and shipwrecks, historic sites like the ruins of the Sutro Baths and the USS San Francisco memorial, trails, and even a Visitor’s Center. Rife with man-made and natural attractions, Lands End is a great place to spend the day exploring the city’s history, cultural roots and natural heritage. The visitor center at Lands End Lookout is the best place to begin if this is your first visit.
The history of Lands End, located at the city’s edge, tells the story of San Francisco’s urban development and the pressures and opportunities to provide city dwellers with outdoor recreational fun. In 1863, developers constructed the first Cliff House as a destination restaurant where visitors could enjoy the dramatic ocean views first hand. During the late 19th century, Adolph Sutro developed this undeveloped land into an expansive public area.
SS Jeremiah O’Brien
The SS Jeremiah O’Brien is a World War II Liberty Ship open to the public. It is one of only two fully restored, operating ships out of 2,710 that were used during the war. In addition to being available for private parties, the ship conducts San Francisco Bay cruises in May and October. You can also visit the ship’s store to get yourself a small token of your visit here.
The “tour” is self guided. Basically you just walk around with some literature they give you and explore on your own. There is very little here that is off limits so it’s really about how much time you want to spend and how high you want to go. There are crew cabins, captain’s quarters, kitchens, dining areas, sick bays, etc to check out. All small but packed with artifacts from the time period. The engine room is also a sight to see.
The SS Jeremiah O’Brien is located at Pier 45. Admission price to SS Jeremiah O’Brien is $12. The SS Jeremiah O’Brien was salvaged from the moth ball fleet located in Suisun Bay. Liberty Ships were built to transport cargo and as such smaller in size than battleships.
The S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien was a Liberty ship, a cargo ship that was mass-produced during World War II. The O’Brien like other Liberty ships was responsible for transporting weapons, men and materials to the front. This was no walk in the park however. Liberty ships traveled in convoys that were constantly preyed upon by submarines and by enemy air patrols. Liberty ships were crewed by Merchant Marines and were defended by a small detachment of Navy gunners armed with deck and anti-aircraft guns.
