    Amazing place to see the sunset but go at least half an hour before the reported sunset time for the day. Twin peaks obstructs the full view so it appears to set "earlier" here.

    Thanks to mild weather in summer and fall, free movies in the park are popular for locals and visitors alike. Of course you’ll want to bring blankets to sit on and bundle up. Read more

    Panoramic views of the city. When it's clear you can see well into the east bay. Both gg and bay bridges are visible - unique view in SF. Head up Anderson from Cortland for easiest access on foot

    Great 45 minute hike, with incredible 360º views! From Precita Park, walk all the way up Harrison St (up steep driveway + neighborhood stairs), right on Ripley, left on Folsom... explore from there!

    Nice little uphill hike. Great panoramic view of the city. Gets quite windy so bring a jacket. Kinda bare so not great for a picnic. Bottom of the hill contains many good places to eat.

    An awesome view from Bernal onto the rest of the city and the Bay. Bonus because you can see Twin Peaks. There is also a stone labyrinth up there that someone maintains.

    Strangely warm summer night in the fog, the hill to myself, the highway drone, and the million lights that make up the rolling hills below. I am a mosquito.

    Have a nice walk looking at all the views of The City. And then head down to Cortland to the Wild Side West's backyard for a beer or three..

    75% of the dogs here are off leash. Be prepared if you or your dog have anxiety with lots of dogs running around off leash (with little supervision).
