See the edge of the world. View the ruins of the largest bath house on the West Coast, get there easily by bike, car, bus. Wear sunscreen for wind and sun, you can burn in the SF fog too. Bring a jacket, wear layers.

This park is on the hill above Cliff house and the Sutro Baths. It is quiet and dog-friendly. It used to be the Home of Adolf Sutro himself (Former Mayor of San Francisco 1895-1897), but it fell into disrepair and only a few things remain...More

A great little park, with a bit of sculpture, above the Cliff House and Pacific Ocean, with magnificent views in a peaceful, relaxing, uncrowded setting.
