It's a great place to go on a clear day to have a beautiful view over the city and the Bay Area. It's possible to take the F tram from market street to Castro and hop on the bus towards twin peaks☀️

From the top of Twin Peaks you get the most amazing panoramic views of San Francisco. You can see the entire city spread out before you and gain a remarkable appreciation for just how densely packed and compact San Fran really is. With an unobstructed view to the west, this is the place to enjoy the setting sun.

I would sit there all day if I had the time while I was there, simply beautiful. I tried setting my alarm to go up there and watch the sunrise before I left, and was unsuccessful, had so much fun the night before, which means I will just have to go back and do it all over again

it is the place to go to see the city laid out in front of you, you have to go there. Probably not worth more that 30 minutes, there's nothing more there than the view. But hey that really is quite a view.

As part of my city tour, we took a drive up to Twin Peaks. One of the best views of the city that you can imagine. We passed several cyclists going up the hill, which was quite impressive and you have a 360 degree view of the city and the bridges. There is limited parking available on top, but well... More

This place is really cool. It was my second time but I visited in the morning both visit. I highly recommend to others visit at nights as everyone do. I mean there is really cool for in the mornings but I can't imagine at nights with wonderful city lights and view.

Been there many times, it's a nice walk from the Castro Muni station. Definitely choose your day wisely as when the fog rolls in, you can't even see to the other peak. When it's nice out though, you can see across the bay.

I live in the city and love urban hiking so this place is great to get a beautiful view overlooking SF for locals and tourists. Just be weary if you drive here there have been numerous cars being broken into lately especially the ones that are parked off to the side of the road, not so much in the main... More

In my opinion this is the best overall view of San Francisco! Definitely stop by here if you are visiting. I would recommend going on a clear day to get the most of the sights, it is still great if it is a little gloomy out though.
