The Top of the peaks of the Twin Peaks provide a more magnificent view of the Bay Area! That is if you can climb the 200 step foot path reinforced with wood going to both of the peaks of the twin peaks. You must be in good shape to climb it. This is one of those tourist landmarks that you've gotta appreciate even if you live here hehehe. With an elevation of ~900+ feet (Noe Peak, the South Peak is 922 ft.. Eureka, the North Peak is 904 ft.), the Peaks are actually the second tallest hills here in the City (Mount Davidson is the tallest), but probably #1 in terms of best 360 panoramic view moreso from the top of the peaks.

Twin Peaks Boulevard is the only road that goes to the summit of the peaks, and on the north side of the hills it connects to Christmas Tree Point, where there is a parking lot and an observation area offering unobstructed views of most San Francisco and the San Francisco Bay. Known by the Spaniards as "Los pechos de la Chola" (i.e. the Breasts of the Indian Maiden), Twin Peaks is ideally located at the geographical center of San Francisco. On a clear day, visitors are treated to a 360-degree view spanning the Golden Gate to Alcatraz, to Berkeley, to the peninsula. But even on a foggy day, the views are heart stopping, with the fog rolling in from the ocean and practically lapping at one?s feet.
