Thr family walked along the trails and down to the old ruins of the baths. The views of the ocean and caves in the side of the cliff were lovely too.

This is an historic place in San Francisco. It was a popular day trip destination back in the day when it was a bath house. Research it if you're a history buff. There are a lot of steps back up to the parking lot, so take your time. Free parking, gift shop, and bathrooms available.

Though Sutro bath is a tourist attraction place, approach to the pool and beach is rough and risky. High tides from Pacific Ocean will bring water to this area.

Sutro Baths is one of the most-requested locations by my clients for romantic, sunset photos. This is a great site if you go early or late. Mid-day can be rather crowded but otherwise it's one of my go-to locations for family, engagement, and post-wedding photos. The rock formation with a clear sunset in the background is epic. Best!

This formed part of my visit to Sutro Heights and Land's end trail. The nice descent to the baths was crisscrossed by garden paths and steps amidst beautiful flowers. Add to these, the view of the Pacific, and you can imagine how soothing the experience has been.

A must see! Just Beautiful. Historical Landmark by the ocean with spectacular views. We were staying at the Grand Hyatt Union Square and did not have a car. Convenient to the bus line, its a straight cross town ride. Bring water, maybe a light jacket (it was windy) and comfortable walking shoes.

Note if you go to the Sutra Baths, you should make the time to hike some of the trails especially to the Lands End Labyrinth.

If you’ve been at Golden Gate Park, it’s well worth a short walk along Ocean Beach to have a look at the Sutro Baths. A fascinating glimpse into the remains of a substantial Victorian era bathing complex. Free. Good view from above. If you want to walk down to the baths, thee are a lot of steps.

Still worth seeing but the ruins are all destroyed by graffiti. A nice view of the crashing waves on the rocks. It is cool so wear a sweatshirt. The walking trails are the coolest parts with very interesting flowers and plant/tree life. There are no public restrooms in the area for anyone with kids.

This whole area is beautiful as you walk along the highway or down by the water. Be sure to bring a sweater as it gets windy and cool

This place does offer some great views of the Pacific Ocean and the coast, but there is also a copious amount of graffiti on the bath ruins that is impossible to ignore.
