Great hiking trails that lead to a beautiful view! About 500 ft in elevation starting on paved roads that then lead to dirt trails, where good shoes and bring some water and a snack :)

This is on Haight, and it looks like some of the hippies that didn't make it came here to camp out. I made it a brief visit as it felt unsafe. 1988

if you're tired of the city life, why not spend a morning or an afternoon walking through the park and relax yourself?

Easy to get to by public transport if you want to get away from the Bay Area. Stunning views of the city and the Bay Area. A good climb, steep for some but not for me. Beautiful greenery. Great views of the houses in the...More

It's up on the hillside so a bit out of the way for the average tourist. But this is a San Fran gem, a gorgeous park and you get great views of downtown and the Bay.

It's pretty cool up there, but you gotta dodge the junkies and homeless but it can be worth the drama sometimes.

Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and

Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
