The trails were very steep. To go down the path, you must walk down some steep hills. It is also near water, so it is very chilly and windy. Wear hiking boots, a jacket or hoody, and pants (not shorts). You get some cool photos here.

I don't know why this attraction isn't rated higher on things to do in San Francisco. It's only a few miles out of town, easy to find and unforgettable views. It wasn't crowded at all, the hiking was easy with areas that were moderate exercise if you wanted to venture off the main path. The views of the baths, the... More

It's a shame that they weren't maintained. It was interesting to see. There's a coffee shop at the information center there at lands end but there's no where to sit down. There's one bench seat but that was taken when we were there. It was cold and very windy so didn't go outside to drink our coffee.

We visited this place on our trip to San Francisco. It was beautiful. Quiet, calming, almost spiritual spot. Be warned though, it was a lot of stairs to get to the ruins and once you're down there, there is no access to the beach.

This is a must if you have time in San Fran, we took our own rental car to the Sutro Baths after taking pictures by the Golden Gate bridge. The Baths view is amazing, but you want to make sure you can walk down a fairly steep hill. You might get lucky like we did and stumble upon a play... More

This was very interesting to see, but I would recommend researching it a little bit so you know the importance of it and how old it is. You can even walk down to the bottom if you so choose to.

Absolutely awesome!! I went with a friend on Easter for the day and thoroughly enjoyed the breath taking views of the ocean and the adventure of walking through the caves. I was so excited after leaving I went straight to you tube to get the facts. It has a very interesting story behind it. The following day I was sore... More

Our Vantigo tour driver took us to Sutro Baths, and we enjoyed it so much we returned a couple of days later. The Baths are part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and there is a great visitor center at the top of the cliffs with a bookstore, cafe, clean restrooms and parking. From the visitor center you have... More

Park service has saved a landmark and created a living exhibit. Part of 'old' San Francisco - this place must have been awesome. Some of that majesty is captured in the park today. Fabulous views, vistas of the Pacific.
