The Sutro Baths Upper Trail to Point Lobos in San Francisco, California is a moderate 0.3 mile one-way trail that starts along the Coastal Trail at Lands End and heads out to Point Lobos before climbing back up to the parking lot.

This trail has stunning views of the coastal cliffs along with the ruins of the Sutro Baths below. The hike starts off heading downhill from either trailhead. If you plan to hike this trail in the opposite direction, make sure to stay right at the trail junction after the initial staircase down towards the Sutro Baths. If you start this hike from the trailhead listed here, just continue along the trail, through the cypress trees, until you reach a large concrete lookout point - Point Lobos.

Continuing on from Point Lobos, you'll hike along cliff edges before hitting a trail junction that leads up a set of stairs back to the parking lot.

Warning: Cliff hike, watch your step!

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
