    Biking up here before the #sunrise is a definite treat. Some days you can watch the #fog roll onto San Francisco. It's #beautiful

    Visit Hawk Hill on a clear day in the early afternoon and bring along a picnic lunch (park your car facing the view and enjoy), a windbreaker, and binoculars.

    Nothing better than riding your bike to the top and looking down at the beautiful city you live in.

    The highest vista point. I actually preferred the two below (photo from the one just before), you can get closer to the bridge. Bring a long lens to include the skyline behind the bridge cables

    Like Mt. Everest, but with no snow. And not nearly as high.

    I can confirm it is indeed a hill and there are in fact, hawks. Best experienced by bike.

    Great view of San Francisco and the bay. Go early on a weekday to miss all the tourists and traffic. And, watch out for cyclists!

    The best viewpoint of the city/bay that a lot of visitors don't know about. Go all the way to the top of the hill.

    You're standing on ancient oceanic rock…that used to reside at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean!

    This is one of the best hidden gems in the entire bay area. Amazing lookout at the top of the entire city skyline and the golden gate bridge. Still one of my favorite scenic places in the SF area

    The rock to the right as you go up the hill is called chert. Each centimeter contains 10,000 years of sedimentation.

    To get the bridge with the city of San Francisco in the background, pull over about half way up Conzelman Road. There's one spot where the Trans America Pyramid lines up with the North Tower.

    Bring your musical instrument and try some listening experiments! Or, grab sticks & rocks, and bang inside and outside the tunnel. What sounds do you notice? See more experiments at Hawk Hill Tunnel: Read more

    the short tunnel after the long tunnel has a dark & mysterious room perfect for making music… complete with graffiti mandalas and faces from the deep
