Definite worth a visit even though it takes around 30 minutes to get there on Uber from downtown due to traffic. Bring camera and be ready for very busy crowds at dusk. Also bring some clothes as it can windy. Great view of SF and surrounds. Worth it just for the photos especially for first time SF visitors.

We walked to the top of Twin Peaks from the Castro and it is quite a climb. Take your time to get up there. You will be rewarded with the most amazing views of San Francisco. It can be windy on top so take layers to keep warm.

Outstanding views in all directions, and not too hard to get to the top. It was very windy at the top so we did not hang around for too long, but loved every minute at the top. Highly recommend it!

I love going to Twin Peaks to get away from the madness and also to just hangout. The view is relaxing and the people mind their own business so you can truly relax.

Greta views of the city from the south. This was our first stop after leaving the airport. Road construction limits parking at the top. Fun drive up the switchbacks.

Great views of the entire city. Totally free attraction and not crowded on the day we were there. Worth waiting for a clear day to get the best photos.

If you are interested in getting a unique view of the city then this is a must see attraction. This is a lookout spot so bring your camera or smartphone to capture a great panoramic view of the city.

You can see all of San Francisco from Twin Peaks, including the Golden Gate Bridge. SF is a unique city.
