Amazing piece of San Francisco's history. To look at these ruins and imagine what it was like back in the day! What a neat place and spectacular views and great place to watch the sunset also. It's not an easy hike/walk down but not too bad. Right on the beach!

One of my favorite places anywhere! . Ajacent to Lands End blocks away from Cliff House, Spectacular vistas, Eerie Imposing ruins..Facinating and beautiful. Walk the defunct tunnel cut out in the cliff if you dare!

Not much left but really cool ruins. It was great that there was something left. Do check out if at Lands End.

We had driven out here to look at the Cliff House and stumbled on this by chance. There is a large parking area just above the bath ruins. A trail leads to the ruins and to Point Lobos. There is also a Lands End trailhead off the parking lot. Well worth the stop to view the ruins. Trail down to... More

I couldn't believe how uncrowded this spot was. The ruins of the old bathhouses are just amazing- make sure to google what they were in their heyday- it adds to your appreciation of the area, and a bit of history is always a bonus on your travels. The beaches were epic- we spent maybe 5 hours here today and 3... More

We only heard about Sutro Bath from our Airbnb hosts and planned a spontaneous trip on the day of. The location is not known to most groups of tourists and so it was not overly crowded. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and is right beside Ocean beach should you want to visit that after. The location is... More

We visited the Sutro Baths while heading to the Cliff House. I did not know much about the history there, but while we were in the Cliff House I learned more about the former grandeur of the place. All that is left now are ruins, but it looks like it was quite the place to visit years ago.

Went here for a quick (hour or two) visit while my mom was in town from the East Coast. We got to the parking area fairly early, maybe 10am, but it was already filling up with tons of people. FYI- there are signs everywhere saying it is a popular spot for break-ins so don't leave anything in plain view!! We... More

Unfortunately I didn't get to walk the rest of Land's End, but the Sutra Baths were gorgeous (save for the graffiti on some of the ruins). Definitely worth a visit for some great views of the ocean. The only problem that some might run into is that, due to the slight incline, it might not be easy for some people... More

We visited the Lands End Lookout Visitors Center and park and Sutro Baths. It is all located at the same site. My kids had fun balancing on the remains of the Sutro Baths, and going inside the cave. We took a pleasant hike with beautiful views. Highly recommend visiting.
