Sutro Baths Stairs.jpg

For use with The Sojourner of San Francisco: LTR/02: Pick Up Where We Left Off, or AKA, a New Beginning?

Sutro Baths was the largest indoor swimming pool when it was completed in 1896. It could accommodate 10,000 visitors at once, and the 1.7 million gallons of water could be filled by Pacific Ocean in one hour. There used to be Sky Tram that ran from nearby Cliff House, took you above Seal Rocks and landed on Point Lobos just above. Just like the Baths itself, was a commercial failure. After the fire consumed it in 1966, it was left as a ruin and never got rebuilt. The stairs connect Sutro Baths to Lands End Lookout, which offers a spectacular view of this romantic ruin. There is even a tunnel near the end of the Baths to explore! The sunset anywhere near is the best.
