The Sutro Heights Park Loop Trail at Sutro Heights Park in San Francisco, California is an easy 0.6 mile loop hike that passes through the old property and public park of millionaire Adolph Sutro.

While the trail is short and flat the park's grounds, history, and a mix of old structures and views, keep it interesting. Along the western side of the trail is a view of Ocean Beach, just below the massive overlook. You can even climb the overlook's stairs to get a better view.

History: The park was built as Sutro's way to give back to the community and showcase the beauty of the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate and the Marin Headlands. Built in 1885, the park was a public garden that spanned over twenty acres including what's now known as Lands End. The gardens were an amazing collection of flower beds, forests, elegant wide walkways, and hedge mazes. There's still a lookout point standing today, which was built overlooking the Cliff House.

Parking: You can park at the link provided, which lies just west of the park with access to the end of this trail recording. Or you can park at the Lands End Overlook parking lot.
