Located away from the downtown and wharf areas, in a residential neighborhood, this is a must pilgrimage to Dirty Harry fans. Parking along the street was no issue, a short walk up a service road takes you to an overlook of SF from Sutro tower...More

I am always wondering why? How are in the world, in the middle of residential area, such a huge Cross. Oh yeah San Francisco. The good points, you can see a view as good as Twin Peaks, less crowded and more greens. However, you may...More

Given that it features in one of my favourite films, appropriately enough it was a bit of a pilgrimage to reach the cross at the top of Mount Davidson. There may be steep hills, slippery slopes and coyote warnings to contend with, but for me...More

It was terrible weather, and the climb was tougher than expected. That slowed us down a bit, but it didn’t stop us. Even in lousy weather, it is a great climb and a wonderful park.

This is a nice park. There are some nice views of the city. It's never very crowded if you're looking for some peace and quiet. It hasn't been taken over by tourists like many popular parks and attractions in the city. The downside is there...More
