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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
