View worth watching
Dec 2020 • Family
Best place to get a view of the entire valley and the city. Not a whole lot to hike but definitely worth a trip if you stay in SF.

Incredible Views!
Jul 2021
I had been trying to identify and find the "Twin Peaks Hairpin Corner" forever! I did not know it was Twin Peaks, as I had only see it on television and music videos. I only knew the view of SF appeared to be fantastic from this vantage point, and I wanted to experience it. We found it totally by accident, and it did not disappoint. The views from Twin Peaks are stunning! So worth the short 30 minute drive.

windy but fun
Jul 2021
We took a cab to Twin Peaks, but the top section was closed to cars. We ran up the hill about 30 yards and took pictures. Be careful! It was extremely windy and my friend felt a gust push her toward the edge of the hill. Hang on to small children. Good view of the city even half way up past the locked gate.

Great but if weather permits

SFO weather can be very tricky as its the bay area. One miunte the sky is clear and the other minute it's all foggy. Great views if you happen to go on a clear day.

Best place in San Francisco for city views and photos!
Jun 2021
This was the PERFECT spot for a great city view! There are a couple of parking areas and two automatic toilets at the top.

We went to Twin peaks, which are the two highest hills (280 meters) overlooking the city of San Francisco after Mount Davidson.
From the top of Twin Peaks, we had a wonderful panoramic viewpoint over San Francisco city and its bay!

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE VISITING!!!!!!
Jan 2021
I've been a Twin Peaks resident for almost 5 years. Due to COVID and the closure of Twin Peaks Blvd, there have been many car break ins along the residential streets where visitors now park to gain access to the trails/peaks.

The view is worth seeing (I live here and it never gets old!), but please DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR!!!! Visitors are targeted here for leaving their belongings in the car as they make a quick trip up to the peaks. Car robberies happen in seconds. One of our neighbors created a YouTube channel (channel name Twin Peaks Bvld) for robberies that he catches on his surveillance cameras.

Please watch if you can. It happens in seconds and can (and will likely) happen to you if you leave ANYTHING in your car. These robberies happen multiple times a day, at all times of day, especially broad daylight. For many of these burglars, it is their "job." These robberies are organized. They work in teams and have cars on the lookout for people who have just parked and head up to the peaks. Then they drive by, case the car, break the window, take everything in sight and then quickly drive away.

I feel so badly for those visiting San Francisco during a vacation to see the beautiful city, only to return to their car and have all their belongings stolen. I've called the police on countless occasions and comforted many visitors mourning the loss of their belongings. Some have even sustained injuries from trying to hold onto their thing as they are being dragged by the thieves' vehicle. I sadly witnessed this happen today, which compelled me to write this review.

Please read this before you visit, and vote this review as helpful so that anyone who is planning to visit will read this. Peace and blessings to you!

Go For the Views
Jan 2021
The views from one of the highest points in the city are splendid. But be careful about leaving things in your car as the car park area is notorious for car break-ins. Certainly don't leave anything in plain sight.

High Crime Area - Avoid!
Nov 2020
Pretty city views but this is a high crime area. Rental car window was smashed and lots of personal property stolen. The police can’t do anything about it. This photo is not worth ruining your trip and spending an hour at the police station

Great Views
Oct 2020
This MUST be done on a clear day. If its cloudy or rainy it will take away the enjoyment. We had an overcast day and could barely see the golden gate bridge. But it was still worth it because the view is spectacular. Since it is free it is even better.
