Unbelievable, breathtaking views. Stayed up there for a while. Fun to drive up and walk around when you get to the top. You can even climb the dirt hills behind where you park. Bring some binoculars if you have them. This is a must if you are in SFO.

My wife and I were blessed to be driven to Twin Peaks by my cousin on our last full day in San Francisco. There were wonderful views of the city of San Francisco that we saw from so many different angles. We took quite a few photos here and it was relatively easy to get to from downtown San Francisco.

We went up to the top at night per a friend's recommendation. It was breezy and busy, but the views were nice and actually a bit humbling.

Easier to get to - take F tram to the end and then catch a bus (same ticket can be used $2). The bus stop is about 50 yards from the end of the F tram opposite the large stripped flag. Once on the bus let the driver know where you want to go and they make sure you get... More

Beautiful views of the city. The wind was no joke but it was worth it. Got parking no problem. You can beat the landscape.

This was part of our sanfran shuttle tour. It was very windy but its like that most of the time according to our guide Molly. We were lucky that the famous fog held off and we got to experience the amazing view. It helps to put the land marks into perspective.

I think that the best time to go here is in the evening. You can see the lights of an entire city, and it's just breathtaking. Be sure to get a good camera - otherwise you won't be able to make any pictures.

On one of our trips we went up here. It was sunny but a bit breezy but the views all around were tremendous. Must be the best place anywhere to view San Francisco and perhaps the only other way to get as good or better view would be to fly.

But one of the best things about San Francisco is that you have great views almost everywhere. Granted, this one is one of the better overall views you can get and permits the post-card style panoramas. My wife and I used to hike up here from the Castro, as a way to get some exercise and a view it's a... More

Best View of the city but take a coat because it can be windy. You can really see how it's it the city is laid out. It's also a great place to make out
