This is a very interesting place that I wish we would have had more time to explore. On they day we visited it was very windy and cold, so we just looked out over the Sutro Baths and water. It appears to have lots of...More
We did this on the last day because we wanted to do the labyrinth walk. Be sure to ask a few walkers for directions as it wasn’t well marked, but was worth it
The views back towards the Golden Gate with San Fran behind, were...More
This place offers amazing views and a Taste of the California coast. I am a guy with bad feet, and the trek was difficult for me, but worth it. Anyone without any physical limitations will not find Land's End to be a problem. I highly...More

Good Evening Karen, I am thinking that the walk from the main parking lot for Land's End to the California Academy of Science in Golden Gate State Park is just about 4 miles and will probably take about two hours at a leisurely stroll. It could take a bit longer depending on how much sightseeing you do along the way. It is downhill to the beach and a minor steady climb going back to the east. You will climb about 250 feet over three miles which really is nothing. You have oceans, Windmills, Bison, Tea Gardens and more along the way to contend with your attention. I guess you could walk back to Land's End, or catch a cab for a nominal fee. Check maps for buses if you have a day pass. The walking route will be well worth your time and the sights you will see are very nice. I hope you do it and enjoy the experience. Cheers.
