Pretty simple hike. Great scenic view. Nice place to have a romantic date or a picnic. You can see San Francisco downtown from the top

If you're planning on a scenic hike, try some other park. Yes it has amazing views since it's the tallest peak in San Francisco, but it feels so far from the rest of the city. Very woodsy, so you need to be careful when hiking. Also, you need to either have a car or time the bus schedule right, because it's a very residential neighborhood, like being in the suburbs.

Not really a hike... short climb uphill.... cross is cool at the top.

As this is the highest point in San Francisco, it is a good (and slightly less crowded) alternative to Twin Peaks. The way up is steep, but short. If you enjoy hiking in the woods, you will enjoy this trail! I personally feel the trail is much too woodsy for me to hike often; I am often avoiding branches, leaves, and mud! Make sure not to come after it rains, as the trail would be quite dangerous. Parking in the neighboring residential area is also quite difficult and discouraging.
