Explore this wooded area in the heart of a concrete jungle. One of the tallest points in San Francisco, this hike offers scenic views. There is great birding habitit, so keep your eyes and ears open

Quite steep but short. The fog and cross made it a holy mystery place. A good up view of the city

Great views of the city. Easy parking. Giant concrete cross 150 to 200 feet tall maybe?This is in my neighborhood and I like to visit regularly.

We started from the stairs on Juanita Way. The trail switchbacks up the north / east side of the hill, and eventually joins the access road about 100 ft below the summit. It'sa nice shaded walk through a fairly thick "urban forest". Once on top you have the Mt Davidson Cross and a bit to the south a nice open patch with a South / East exposure providing great views of the city with some wildflowers and butterflies. Usage by hikers is moderate, and usage by mountain bikers is almost non-existent (despite what it says here. You wanna see bikes? go to Crissy Field or GG Park on a Sunday). All in all a nice Urban escape.
