Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks in San Francisco stands as the second-highest peak in the area at 922 feet high, just after Mt. Davidson. It’s dog-friendly, making it a great place to explore with your furry friend. Originally known as “Los Pechos de la Choca” (Breasts of the Maiden) by early Spanish settlers, these peaks offer some of the most stunning views of the Bay Area and a haven for various animals and plants.

But there’s more to Twin Peaks than meets the eye. To explore this stunning landscape and discover the true beauty of nature, you’ll want to hit the 0.7-mile trail network that leads to both peaks. The vistas you’ll find here are unparalleled, offering a full 360-degree view that surpasses even the one from the north peak overlook.

As you hike, keep your furry friend on a leash, and remember to stay on the established trails to protect against poison oak and minimize erosion. If you’re up for a more extended adventure, consider hiking down Twin Peaks Blvd towards Portola Drive, where you can continue your journey into Glen Canyon Park, adding an extra 1.2 miles to your adventure. Be sure to bring drinking water for you and your dog.
