Twin Peaks Tours

star-5
1 Review
Twin Peaks
Rising more than 900 feet (274 meters) above San Francisco, Twin Peaks provides a panoramic view of the city and beyond. On clear days, from these two hills you can see for miles, taking in the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio, Alcatraz Island, downtown San Francisco, and Berkeley, Oakland, and Sausalito across San Francisco Bay.

The Basics
Most visitors take in sweeping vistas from the scenic overlook, but it’s also possible to follow short trails up the two hills of Twin Peaks—South Peak and North Peak—for unobstructed views. Many San Francisco city tours include a stop at Twin Peaks for photo ops, while some half-day tours combine a visit here with other Bay Area landmarks, such as Muir Woods and Sausalito, or a bay cruise. For an insider’s view, consider an urban-hiking tour that also takes in some of the city’s lesser-known stairways and hills.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Restrooms and a parking lot are available.
  • The scenic overlook in the North Peak parking lot is wheelchair accessible.
  • Bring layers, as you may feel strong winds standing at the second-highest point in San Francisco.
  • Wear sturdy shoes if you plan to explore any of the hiking trails in the 64-acre park.
 
How to Get There
Twin Peaks is located in a residential area of central San Francisco, about a 30-minute drive southwest of downtown. Unless you’re on a city tour, it takes a special trip to get here; you won’t just pass by on your way to other attractions. Drive up Twin Peaks Boulevard from either Clarendon Avenue or Portola Drive, or take a cab or ride-share vehicle.
 
When to Get There
The park is open daily from early morning to midnight. For extra-special views, go at sunrise or sunset. During summer it can be difficult to avoid the city’s fog; aim for late afternoon for your best chance of clear photos if you’re visiting during this time.
 
Nearby Neighborhoods
The two closest neighborhoods to Twin Peaks that are popular with San Francisco visitors are Haight-Ashbury and the Castro. Plan your sightseeing adventures so you can also explore these two districts, both known for their seminal roles in San Francisco’s countercultural history.
