This is mostly ruins. If you are interested in the site, take a look at the available film footage of this grandiose building. The only thing left of it is some stones.

From a visual standpoint the ruins are great. Interesting story and fun to look at. However, there is way too much trash and graffiti to consider this a highlight of my trip. The rock formations in the water are really cool though.

This is a great free activity to do with kids. It's within an area called Lands End in NW San Francisco. It has a beautiful view and yes some of the paths are steep but we went with two 5 year olds who enjoyed exploring the area. There is a path to the right of the Sutro Baths that you... More

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.
