Unbeatable view overlooking San Francisco in all its glory. Even in the fog it’s a wonderful sight to see. It can be very cold though!

Nice place to visit and relax when you are not in a hurry. Perfect spot to see the skyline of SF at night. Weather can be chilly at times. Going out of here can be very challenging especially when you are just commuting via taxi...More

Beautiful is an understatement! The twin peaks offer a magnificent view of the city, bay and beyond. Don't miss this when you visit SFO. After all, it's free. No entrance fees!

Amazing views. Gorgeous all around. Was super busy at sunset. But absolutely stunning, definitely the most picturesque time to go. We parked low down and walked up, was the best decision given the madness trying to find a spot at the top. Toilets were reeeeally...More

The view from the top was magnificent, best some 30-60min after sunset, when some light remains but city lights come up. There are some parking around the lookout. A must do if you have time and a car.

I try to take guests to Twin Peaks whenever a visitor comes to town. They are all blown away with the 360 degree view of the city, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Pacific Ocean. It's a little hard to get to, but one just...More

Best view EVER..... i only give it 3 stars because you don’t want to go alone at night. Day view is the best when there is no fog. If you have a great camera night shots are perfect.... Just not alone.

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
