Got a great view over the city when visiting. Fortunately for us, there were no clouds, so we could see a lot. The winds here are strong and it is cold. When visiting twin peaks bring a jacket or something warm to wear!

Twin Peaks has some of the best views in San Francisco, but has nothing else but a few parking spaces and some binoculars to view from. A quick pitstop but don't go expecting anything more.

I imagine the views looking out over San Francisco from Twin Peaks must be hard to beat; unfortunately I’ll have to leave it to my imagination because it was so foggy the morning our tour bus went up there. Shame.

Amazing view over the city a near 180 degree view. We were lucky to be with a tour group so parking easy but it was pretty busy up there and not much else to do once you have taken your shots. Be sure to walk...More

Twin peaks is a nice short drive from San Francisco. Rating is purely ion what I imagined we would see. It was foggy and we saw nothing. I expect on a clear day that the view would be fantastic.

Stopped by here for some photos when we arrived in San Francisco- luckily we arrived around 2:30pm so the views were relatively fog free. Definitely worth stopping by if you have the time. The public toilets aren’t that great so best to arrange a quick...More

Difficult to find when driving your own car here. But the views over the city are unbeatable. I don't want to argue with local people but perhaps the best option is to go there my mid afternoon??? If not, fog will beat you...

Unfortunately our view was obscured by our old friend, the San Francisco fog. Have been before though and the view is fantastic.

If you want to see a truly scenic view of San Francisco then the only place to go is Twin Peaks. One can drive or get on a tour bus and once you're there you can see all the way down Market St. to the...More

Plan your visit at noon or afternoon, because otherwise the chance for great view is small due the morning clouds.

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

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
