San Francisco, California 94121
The ruins of Sutro Baths, an extravagant public bath house opened in 1896, are one of the most haunting places to visit with your dog in San Francisco. A single signpost warns of getting thrown off the rocks by crashing waves and dying, but the threat is very real. Enjoy the labyrinthine structure, stairways to nowhere, wildflowers and gnarly cypress trees.
Sutro Baths in various incarnations survived into the 1960s, burning down in 1966 as it was being demolished. In 1980 it became part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
