Completion Date: Ongoing

The Lands End project has proceeded in several key phases, restoring native plant habitat, improving forest health, expanding scenic vistas, creating new overlooks, enhancing trail experiences, and building a new visitor facility, the Lands End Lookout.

Project Highlights:

Lands End Trailhead:
The new trailhead and overlook above the Sutro Baths provides the main entrance to the Coastal Trail at Lands End. In 2008, parking facilities were expanded, views restored, and coastal dune scrub and wetland habitat protected.

This project received the 2010 Beautification Award from
San Francisco Beautiful.

USS San Francisco Memorial Overlook:
Situated just above the Coastal Trail, this unique spot offers expansive views of the Golden Gate and Marin Headlands. Completed in 2010, upgrades to the parking area and overlook include improved visitor accessibility, re-paving and configuration of the parking lot, and the addition of permeable surfaces with native plantings for improved drainage and water recycling.

Volunteers at Lands End

Park Stewardship San Francisco:
Volunteer-driven natural and cultural resource stewardship will continue, including ongoing habitat restoration carried out by the
Park Stewardship program.
