Sutro Baths is at the north west corner of the city next to the Cliff House. The baths, which are now ruins, was a popular swimming pool that opened in the 1800's which burned down in the 1960's.

What is left is a beautiful building foundation which has integrated with nature.

Now, the Sutro Baths, offers a day of exploration with ruins, mountains, and caves.

A couple of key spots at the Sutro baths are the cave below the stairs in the northwest corner and the pebble design at the top of the stairs and hill.
