Create an itinerary including Twin Peaks
Admire a spectacular view of San Francisco from Twin Peaks. Located 20 minutes from the city center, the park features two of the highest points in San Francisco and is a well-known escape from the buzz of the city, where visitors can enjoy a tranquil walk or picnic with sprawling views of the Bay Area from 281 m (922 ft) up. Be sure to pack a jacket, as the area is known for windy conditions. See Twin Peaks and all San Francisco has to offer by arranging your trip with our San Francisco trip planning site.

  • Ended up here on a Monday afternoon. Such an incredible view. We loved how much your could see. Available short hikes to the peaks from the parking lot. Needs more bathrooms. Very windy on top...

  • Definitely check the weather forecast before you go. Like most places in San Francisco, this hill is very foggy and you can’t really see much. I would rate it three stars, however that overall atmosphere was pretty nice and at least you can see some of the town down below. Definitely not really worth the trip up if the weather is not great, but on good days I bet the view is very pretty. However, I feel like the local park service can do a better job cleaning this place. There was a lot of trash when we went all over the grass and it just didn’t feel very clean. Additionally, in order to use the telescopes, you have to pay about $.50 so make sure you bring your own if you want to really look close at certain points in the town. It’s also extremely chilly up, so dress for the weather. I should’ve definitely worn heavier clothes , it’s about 10° colder up there than it is in the cities. Overall, if the weather is nice, it’s definitely a nice spot. Otherwise, id avoid.
  • This visit was much better than my last one! The hostess was cordial, and I was seated quickly (although I was put in the far back corner). Macy was my server and was properly attentive. Order place, order received, all good. For this visit I ordered the Millionaires Burger with sweet potato fries. The hamburger was delicious! It is now on my Top 5 best hamburgers list. The sweet potato fries were perfectly cooked: crispy on the ootside and tasty! Side note I'm a photographer and I had just finished up a photo shoot with a model. Two models that I have photographed work here, so that's why I return. Neither were on duty this night. I often eat alone and since I'm driving, I never order drinks. Perhaps these two factors lead to my usually receiving adequate to poor service. Which is too bad since I tip 50% for good service.
