We stopped here on a tour bus and experienced the most amazing views of San Fran! it was busy but there was still space to get a good view. Lots of parking for buses/coaches and cars, aswell as a small shop and restrooms.

A spectacular photo op! Only a short ride in any direction for a colorful tour of one of the unique neighborhoods like the HAIGHT to the North, or CASTRO to the South. Head West to Ocean Beach or East to enjoy the shopping on Market...More

You need to visit this place if you want to get a glimpse of whole of San Francisco. The view is really amazing. Visit here if you are not scared of heights. There are ladders to get onto the peaks. Network connectivity will be low....More

This is a must do spot if in San Francisco. We went for sunset and it was beautiful and if you stay long enough it’s also lovely to see the city all lit up in the dark.

If you want a spectacular panoramic view of SF, this is it!! Easy to get to with a car. You get an almost 360 degree view of the Bay Area.

It was windy and quite cold even in Summer time on the top of the hill. Amazing panoramic view of the city during sunny days.

Windswept and otherwise desolate, it affords vistas of San Francisco and the neighbouring East and North Bay counties. Muni Bus 37–Corbett heads west to Twin Peaks from Market Street. Catch this bus above the Castro Street Muni light-rail station on the island west of Castro...More

Twin Peaks is drive up to the top of a Hill. The sight is free and no parking charges are levied. Parking along the roadside is easily available. Cars can drive right to the top so it is very easy for old or handicapped people....More

You have more to fear from the human species at night here than the coyotees . Humans are much more dangerous here than the animals .
