Long Description:
At 922 feet in elevation, Twin Peaks is second only to Mt. Davidson in height, offers spectacular views of the Bay Area, and is a world-famous tourist attraction. Originally called “Los Pechos de la Choca” (Breasts of the Maiden) by early Spanish settlers, these two adjacent peaks provide postcard views and a treasure trove of animal and plant diversity. Most visitors to Twin Peaks drive (or take a tourist bus) to the north peak parking lot to enjoy 180-degree views of the Bay Area.

This 64-acre park is similar in habitat to the Marin Headlands. The coastal scrub and grassland communities gives us an idea of how San Francisco’s hills and peaks looked before grazing and then development changed them forever. The best way to see this landscape is to hike the trails that ascend the two peaks, where you will also find 360-degree views that surpass those at the north peak overlook.
