Had it been a nicer day, we would have spent more time exploring the trails and walkways along the Sutro Baths. Amazing views regardless. Make sure you check out the picture of the Baths on the side of Louis Restaurant (located just above them) to fully appreciate what they would have looked like years ago.

Its a great place to visit. The baths are a pretty easy walk down but still takes you out to nature. It was raining when we went so it was very very wet and muddy. A lot of the area was covered by large pools of water which made some parts hard to get to, but you can still get... More

We had a great time at the Sutro Baths! The parking is free, we drove a few min but found a spot. The views are incredible, we got lucky with the weather too, it was a beautiful day! There's quite a few steps down to the baths, but it's fun to walk around and crawl on the ruins.

This place was not even on the itinerary when my friend and I made our list of things to see! It was thanks to our hotel receptionist at the Metro Hotel that we made a trek to this place. I don't think photos can do this place enough justice. The view is spectacular during the day time, but if you... More

This is a spectacular spot on a clear day. The views are amazing and the crashing of the waves dramatic. Walking around the ruins and over to the point is not to be missed. Children will love the tunnel!

The trip is well worth the time and effort! Plan to spend 1-2 hours near the baths. Go early for a less crowded experience as it can be very busy at peak times. A great place for quiet contemplation and imagining what the area would have looked like in it's hey day. Wear comfy shoes and layer up. Don't forget... More

Stunning! The area offers gorgeous views and a small hike nearby. The ruins are that of an ancient bath but it's the ocean view that's best here.

I lived in SF for 4 years and during that time never made it to the Sutro Baths. I'm glad I got my act together and went this last trip, such an interesting historical site. Very Instagram worthy, the ruins of this old bathhouse sit right on the ends of the earth with the sea breaking over them. Wear comfortable... More
