Located below the Cliff House in the ruins of what was once Sutro Bathes, there used to a pathway that led to the large fishing rock. This was a spectacular and special place to go, especially during more extreme weather when the crashed hard all around you - rain gear required. Suffice to say, the Government eventually had to protect the people from themselves, and demolish this structure, as apparently some choose to visit in various states of inebriation, or recklessly fail to securely hold on to the rock as the waves crashed over them, leading to predictable results. The Pathway was demolished in the 90's
