Very easy to find if in a rental car. Just find Market Street and head west all the way until it gets into the hilly section. We always use the giant antennae as a sign if the view will be good up there or not. If you can see the top of the antennae, then make the trip. If not wait until the weather clears up.

We drove up, but could barely see the road in front of us, let alone San Francisco. Poor planning on our part, but I'm sure there would be good views when there's no fog.

Yep, it's true, there are wonderful vistas of San Francisco from atop Twin Peaks. But it sure does get crowded with the hordes of tourists bussed in. I found a hiking trail that took me here but also took me to a few other lesser knowns hills near Twin Peaks but without the throngs of tourists. Tank Hill was my favorite -- but best of luck finding this place as there's no signs leading to this gem.

We took a taxi from Castro to Twin peaks on the recommendation of a local. I am so pleased that we did. The views at night were amazing, seeing San Francisco in all its' glory. Well worth a visit day or night.

Make sure you bring a warm jacket and wait for the skies to clear. Parking can be a hassle during peak times, but if you're patient people always leave after a few minutes...especially if they forgot their jackets...
