About
Standing over 900 feet above the city, these two hills offer hikers sweeping views of San Francisco's main sights (we recommend going at sunset).

    Panoramic views of San Francisco -Stunning Views, Windy Summits
    From the 900-foot peaks, you can see the entire city sprawl out before you, along with the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay. Great spot for sunrise or sunset photos. - Parking can be crowded, especially during peak hours. - Be prepared for the wind, wear something warm just in case.

    City view at it’s best
    Pretty good area to see the city day and night. Highest peak on San Francisco city. Parking spaces are limited. It’s free to visit. Dog friendly. A good place for the family. The street art is also pretty interesting. See images and videos for further information.

    Best views in the city
    Great views! You can’t really get any better in the city. We got a bus and walked to the top, took about 20 mins to get to the top. Also not to far from Castro which is an interesting area to visit. Would recommend. Would advise to bring water etc, no fountains at the top or anything

Great place to get a view over San Francisco on a clear day. Very easy to get to by public transportation. Just take the F streetcar to the last stop (17th & Castro), then cross the street to take Bus 37 to 74 Crestline Drive. All the tourists and skateboarders will get off here. It's a very short but steep hike up. I went to Noe Peak first (which had less people), then Christmas Tree Point. I think you can only see the Golden Gate Bridge (through the fog) from Noe Peak. Very windy at the top and lots of crows. If you take the bus back, you can get on at the same stop. The bus will then take a break at the last stop before going back to the Castro.

We were so lucky, on our last day in SF we got to go to Twin Peaks and the weather was perfect! No fog just clear skies and beautiful views of the entire city. It’s FREE, no need to pay for a tour. Just drive up there and enjoy the lovely views!

Twin Peaks are the tourist attractions spot and situated in the western part of the city San Francisco. Two peaks are adjacent to each other. One can view the entire San Francisco city from the top of peak. Few steps are to be climbed to reach the top.

For us this is where we met SF for a first time this time. This point gives you overview of the city and the Bay Area.
You have basically 360 degree view of everything happening here. Perfect spot to start a journey into San Francisco’s streets.

Even on a “rainy” weekend, the views were still worth it. We climbed up one of the peaks - it has stairs which does help. I can imagine during summer or high tourist times it would be nearly impossible to park.

Guess what? You can go up to Twin Peaks using public transport. We did! We took the Muni 37 and walked up the rather steep but picturesque wooden steps till we reached the road leading up to the Twin Peaks.themselves. We then walked up the Twin Peaks and yes, it was definitely worth the effort. We got amazing views of the City of San Francisco far below us. The weather was kind to us. It was a sunny morning and that helped!

Not conivinent to get to if you don't have a car. very cold and windy, can't stay there for long, I was there for about 15 minutes just cause I needed to wait for another ride. There's a view of the city but it's not worth the effort nor the time. Overrated in my opinion, you can spend the time better walking around the city.

It was a rainy and foggy day but still managed to catch some great views and pics here. The drive up to the peaks was fun with all the winding roads. Definitely worth a trip to see San Fran from up there!

We took a cab to Twin Peaks, but the top section was closed to cars. We ran up the hill about 30 yards and took pictures. Be careful! It was extremely windy and my friend felt a gust push her toward the edge of the hill. Hang on to small children. Good view of the city even half way up past the locked gate.
