Go early in the day or at dusk for the best views and to avoid all coach tourists. Definitely worth doing - take an extra layer as can get nippy!

This is well worth the hike, as long as it's a clear day. You will be rewarded with stunning views of the city and you can follow Market Street as it goes off into the distance and meets the ocean. Then, once you're done, go and get some cookies from the little shop in the castro on the corner! A... More

I had no idea this place existed until my brother drove me up. Unparalleled views of San Francisco, the Bay, and the surrounding areas. You could see the fog rolling in from the South. Crazy!!! A must visit for anyone going to San Francisco, but if you're afraid of heights, beware!

If you can get to Twin Peaks you must go. On a clear day you can see the city and all of the Bay. We took Dylan's Tour and they took us up, it was great! If it's really foggy you won't see much.

This is fantastic place You can enjoy breeze and city view from the top. You can see this pace when we are on the Cruz exploring the Golden Gate Bridge. View and sunset are memorable thing in the life of a visitor

Long climb up - and inaccessible to the tour buses so you need to take a taxi. Allow at least fifteen minutes to enjoy the view and take photos
