See the edge of the world. View the ruins of the largest bath house on the West Coast, get there easily by bike, car, bus. Wear sunscreen for wind and sun, you can burn in the SF fog too. Bring a jacket, wear layers.

This whole area of San Francisco is just spectacularly beautiful with great trails and sweeping vistas. Remarkable that such a raw experience exists within this concrete city.

I cannot stress how beautiful the views are from Sutro Heights Park. Grounds are beautiful, and then an easy walk to Ocean Beach and Cliff House. A definite must see!
