Whether it’s the same force that plagued the Baths when they were open, or something new since they were ruined, there is no question that something draws denizens of the spirit world to the Sutro Baths.
Urban explorers braving the tides, cold weather, and unsteady footing of the ruins report a multitude of ghosts.
Old patrons of the baths are the most common supernatural sighting.
They’re most often seen at night and could be mistaken for mortal visitors, if not for their wildly incongruous turn-of-the-century swimming garb.
Given the typical nighttime climate of San Francisco, they make quite an unusual sight in their sun dresses and swimming pants, wielding umbrellas and towels.
These ghosts are harmless if shocking. They seem to reenact the heyday of the Sutro Baths, roaming the stone ruins, laughing and playing.
