Fodor's Expert Review Twin Peaks

Noe Valley Viewpoint
Free Fodor's Choice

Windswept and desolate Twin Peaks—aptly named after a pair of towering peaks overlooking the city—yields sweeping vistas of San Francisco and the neighboring East and North Bay counties. At a hilltop park 922 feet above sea level, you can get a real feel for the city's layout, but you'll share it with busloads of other admirers; in summer, arrive before the late-afternoon fog turns the view into pea soup. To drive here, head west from Castro Street up Market Street, which eventually becomes Portola Drive. Turn right (north) on Twin Peaks Boulevard and follow the signs to the top. 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 at Market Street.
