The ride up can be a bit scary, but, the destination is truly unique and worth the ride. It's just so peaceful above "The City" any time of day or evening.

Very nice view of San Francisco from twin peaks. It's relatively close to the city and easy to reach.

I read the reviews from different sites including TripAdvisor to search for sightseeing in San Francisco. Since Twin Peaks is suggested as one of the place to visit, I had high expectation. But I was disappointed when I got there. It is a hill with...More

Like any tourist spot it has high crime in the parking lot. So sad but we witnessed several people in cars lying in wait, and peeking into cars and one man smashed the window of a car parked two spots down from us. It's so...More

This is a fantastic locale to get the best possible view of San Francisco. Worth the drive. A local friend brought us there. Great little trek.

This place is one of the best spots to view the city as well as parts of the East BAy. Make sure you take in the view from all sides of the hill. Having binoculars will add to the trip. Fantastic views during the day,...More

Twists and turns take you up Twin Peaks where you will enjoy interesting views of San Francisco and the areas around it, especially on a clear day. Or, for a surreal treat, go for the drive on a foggy day and feel as if you...More

As the title says really! Takes a little while to get there from downtown but it's certainly worth it. There are 3 viewing areas to visit, both of the peaks and an established view point a bit lower down but with unrestricted views of San...More

Be sure to use the panoramic feature of your camera! You won't believe the view. Also, be prepared for a breeze, but it is worth it.

Greetings! I am planning on visiting San Francisco this summer. In regards to Twin Peaks is this somewhere you drive to? or is it a short walk/hike? I know because of the elevation it will be cold. So we would bring sweaters. I would like to know how long of a walk/hike this is in order to be prepared. Thank you!

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
