    Pack water and snacks, and let a summit picnic be your reward. You can also drive up the Eureka North peak if hiking's not your thing.

    If you have a car, be sure to head up to Twin Peaks Summit on a sunny day for panorama views of the city. And the drive up is just as enjoyable as the view.
