Admire a spectacular view of San Francisco from Twin Peaks. Located 20 minutes from the city center, the park features two of the highest points in San Francisco and is a well-known escape from the buzz of the city, where visitors can enjoy a tranquil walk or picnic with sprawling views of the Bay Area from 281 m (922 ft) up. Be sure to pack a jacket, as the area is known for windy conditions. See Twin Peaks and all San Francisco has to offer by arranging your trip with our San Francisco trip planning site .

Twin Peaks Reviews

Spectacular view! Crowded, but you'd expect that, it's a lookout point in San Francisco.. it'll attract everyone. It was real nice. We drove up to the very top but I know some people hike or bike. The car parked next to us got broken in to... so be aware of leaving valuables in the car. It was crazy that it happened RIGHT there, people all around.. so heads up.
This was our second time here and we loved and enjoyed it just like the first time. It’s very windy and cold up there so make sure to layer up. I would recommend doing this drive or hike on your first day since it’s outside SF’s main attractions and if you don’t go it first you might run out of time.
