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.

It's fun to check out and walk around the old Sutro Baths, ruins of a former playful time in San Francisco. Right near the Cliff House, Seal Rock, Lands End, and looking out over the vast expanse of the pacific Ocean. For a while, there was an otter hanging around.

I visited the baths on April 7, 2015 after visiting the GG Bridge and Legion of Honor. The views of the ocean are amazing and the ruins of the pools are impressive. I greatly enjoyed learning about the history of the baths in the informational center. It is a bit out of the way to access, especially by public transportation,... More

We love to hike and this is a great option when heading into the city from North of the GG Bridge. A beautiful hike along the headlands with great views and interesting vegetation along the way. Also good people-watching. For a more vigorous walk, you can hike down toward the ocean and walk through a cave, which is fun and... More

Stopped by the Sutro Baths after visiting the Legion of Honor museum and Lands End. The landscape is a bit deceptive from the parking lots - the hike is actually pretty legit once you get down to the coast and baths. We weren't here for the sunset which I agree with other commentators would be amazing. There's a small visitors... More

The view of the Pacific, Cliffhouse being a walk away, and the cuteness of the birds and ducks on the bath are undeniably good reasons to see this place. The hiking trail to Legion is also a good walk.

Park just above the Cliff House it's free. Trail has lots of steps, rocks and is hilly. Great views here and great pics. Leads to the Cliff House then the beach.

I'm not really a tourist in San Fran but I enjoy going there for a walk every now and then. It has such a gorgeous sunset that awes me every time. It's not very crowded with tourists and the view on the beach is simply pacifying.

Experience beautiful views of the waves crashing against the rocky coast and see a piece of SF history (I like to listen to classical music on my headphones while doing this). I recommend looking at some photos beforehand of what the place looked like in its glory days. Hike down and walk among the ruins, and check out the cave.... More

You kind of had to know what you are looking at, or do your research before you go. There is not a lot to see, except for the edges of the pools and the water at the edge of the ocean. We saw it on a hop-on hop-off tour group and they told us it was the bath house and... More
