Great 360 degree city view. Good for snaps and for a short trek. Avoid it on a very hot or cold windy day.

The perfect panoramic view over San Francisco and the bay area. When you have enough luck and no fog or dust you can see everything from golden gate to oakland. Take the time and give it a try on a sunny day. You won't regret it.

although it's hard to find a parking on a weekend but not impossible. Also there are additional parking available. The cops should check for pot smokers who were a nuisance if you're with the little kids around. Otherwise definitely worth a try if you're in the city with leisure time.

Amazing beautiful views! Try to go on a clear day so that you can see the Golden Gate bridge unobstructed.

We stopped off here going into San Francisco and what a great choice and start to our time in San Fran. It gives you a 360' view of the city. It's strange because up so high everything looks so flat but in reality it's so hilly.. It's great to have a high view of the city after the only sky... More

Beautiful view of the city! You must wear layers and be ready for the strong and cold wind. Hold on to your camera carefully, might blow it out of your hands!

Great view of the city, especially on a clear day. It's free, and I felt it was better than Coit Tower. If you don't have a car, it might be tough getting all the way up, but if you do have a car, it's worth going to see. I'm scared of heights to an extent, but I did not feel... More

Climb up the hill to get a beautiful view of San Francisco city. Not much to do here, so you can easily cover this view point in couple of hours.

We visited early on a Sunday morning - very few people there. Alcatraz and the Golden Gate were hazy with fog, but still a great view of the city even with the overcast skies! If you have a car, free must stop for visitors!

The twin peaks are actually pretty far from other major spots in San Francisco , so that depends on the time you have to visit the city . It's a good spot , you can really see the city from those hills
