Great place

Very nice place. Good hiking trails. Impressive view of ocean and golden gate. It was little crowded, but it was definitely worth to visit.

MY friend took me here and it was great views of the old bath. We took time for a walk around the old baths and enjoy the lovely day. A definite must.

Enjoyed checking out this site in Sutro Heights Park right on the ocean! So many different old pools to view with random staircases on the coast! You can see the Cliff House from here and watch the waves crash into what is left. Should definitely check it out!

The bath remains are neat to walk around and there is a cave to explore with ocean water rushing in. You can see old pictures of the baths in the Cliff House restaurant.

You go in, walk around the ruins, small gift shop where you can buy books about the history. It would have been nice to have a little area set up with objects, pictures, maybe a little narrated video about the baths. Something. We did walk the whole thing, take pictures, etc. Very pretty views for sure.

Historically, the Baths were the Place to be...until their untimely demise - regardless, the site is spectacular and mere steps away from The Cliff House and Ocean Beach. The View of the Pacific Ocean from the Cliff House will take your breath away. TIP:Do not Frolic in the deadly waves

This would have been an amazing place in it's heyday but all that is left now is a old salt water pool in dire need of a clean up. There are some nice views and interesting history but so many things to see in SF

A great place to sit with a chick and talk for hours. Pretty wreckage from another time and world absconded

I'm pretty surprised at the lack of informational/directional signs in the area. We had to ask a fellow tourist if the path in front of us was the one we should take to get down to the ruins. There was a fence nearby, and by the way it looked we weren't sure if we were allowed down the path. I... More
