This is a popular place for hill runs and sunset views. It’s about 1 mile to the summit of Twin Peaks, using Twin Peaks Blvd. Great homes, great views, fabulous place to watch the sunset…or the fog— and a 400 foot elevation gain in 1 mile with 10–11% grades! One can combine this with the nearby trails of Mount Sutro, which is sort of a city ‘cloud forest’.  Also, one can combine with Golden Gate Park, whose eastern sections are about 1 mile away from Twin Peaks Blvd.
