A short loop trail, that giver stunning 360 degree views of San Francisco. A hidden gem that offers views worth the slight climb.

This is definitely one of my favorite walks with my dog because starting from the bottom of the hill, I can get a bit of exercise at the same time. The views from the top of the hill are indeed stunning on a clear day. I also like the public art up here.

This is my favorite spot for a nature walk in San Francisco. You get a stunning 360 view of the city. The walk is easy and there are cute dogs everywhere! It's also a great workout spot if you run the loop several times. Someone added a swing at the very top, but I wouldn't hop on as it looks quite unstable. There are 2 tiny lots for parking; one at the foot of the trail, and one midway up. Make sure to park at the one at the foot of the loop!

Great views of the city and rarely gets crowded. It can be windy but is a great place to watch the fog roll in over Sutro

Gets super windy and lots of dogs but a nice spot to get up high for views of the city

Popular neighbourhood hill near the Mission in SF. Great for a quick nice view of the City. Plenty of off-leash dogs if that's your thing. But there usually is at least some spot to hunker down and ponder away from dog walkers and people and the views are very nice albeit it does get windy. Early morning/evening especially nice.

Very popular for special astronomical events (eg super moons) and Fourth of July!

Great short hike for the dogs. Great views for their people.

Very easy hike with some opportunity to "get off the beaten path" by hiking up the hill. Dogs are everywhere, with plenty of opportunities for off leash running.

Breathtaking views of SFO. Just too many dogs with no leashes.

One of the best urban hikes in SF. You get an amazing 360 degrees view of the city as a reward when you atop that hill. Not too strenuous. Dog friendly. Has a water fountain at the start and easily accessible by Bart! What more could you ask.

Outstanding views. A little bit of a climb but still kid-friendly. If you're a long time San Franciscan, this is a must.

Some of the best views of SF from this "hidden gem" of the city. Views of GG, Bay Bridge, Oakland, Candlestick, Sutro, mt Davidson, Marin Headlands, etc... Easy Parking, dog friendly.

Has the full gambit, from an easy paved trail to steep cutbacks straight up the hill. The view of the city from the top is spectacular, particularly at night.
