Had a chance to trek up the twin peaks before leaving San Francisco. Definitely glad we made the stop. Did not spend more than 30-45 minutes there. The view is absolutely breathtaking! If you have a chance to stop by, take a few deep breaths,...More

We only went part way up, but still experienced great views of the city. Roadside pulloffs were pretty filthy with litter and some undesirable items if you have children with you though. (Used condoms, for example)

Love, Love, Loved Twin Peaks! I really enjoyed the hike up both peaks. The view of the city and the bay was breathtaking. The skies were clear so I got some great pictures of the city.

This place is great. The attention of the waiters is wonderful, food, the local beer and shots are great too. The building and decoration is also something to point out.

The city lays out before you. You can really get an idea of how SF is laid out if you have a map to consult while viewing. I recommend the laminated fold out one. Lasts longer and desire to read.

You may find yourself in the clouds up here but when they part you get a fabulous panorama of the City. You can also see Sutro's tower, the modern telecommunication tower which is visible wherever you are in the City.

We went up to the top of Twin Peaks at Sunset, hoping to get a great view. The fog rolling in and out definitely blocked the view, was amazing to look at. Wear warm clothing, it's cold up there!

We rented bikes for a full 24 hours so decided to bike up here! We locked our bikes and hiked the last bit, but the view was amazing! The bay and all the bridges. As it got later, the weather MOVED in...which made it colder...More

Went up here after a recommendation from an Uber driver. It’s a great view of the city and relatively quiet. Would recommend it to people looking to get away from things and look down on the city as a whole.

You have more to fear from the human species at night here than the coyotees . Humans are much more dangerous here than the animals .

I would definitely drive, its way out of the town. Well worth the effort though. I actually got my bearings of the city from there. Every time I was in the city after that I thought of standing on the hill pictured the city... More

You can also take the 37 bus and get off at the end of the line. From there it is a short walk up a natural trail cut through the grass to the peak. Its a bit of a walk. I would recommend possibly taking a taxi/uber up... More
