Great views. Lightly trafficked. Be prepared for mud after you cross Clarendon. Maybe bring poles if you are so inclined.

Just a quick walk from the magnificent city viewpoint up the nearby hill and back. It was windy and crowded, but we were all lucky to be there on such a clear beautiful day. This is a world-class view for sure!

Last half was very muddy so we took our own way back through neighborhoods which was just as great!

Mt Sutro is beautiful and pleasant to walk through, while still providing a decent challenge with the elevation gain. Getting to twin peaks is also very nice, but you better hope it's not too foggy/windy when you get up there. Also, if you have hiking boots, highly recommended for the mud.

Great "triple summit" hike if the weather is good. The poison oak can be intimidating at times but lots of wildflowers, scenic lookouts, and rest stops.

A really nice trail in the city, unfortunately partly closed, so had to invent some detours.

Second half that takes to directly to the Sutro Tower got pretty muddy and slippery after the rain. The suggested trail was closed off for restoration. Take the mystery or fairy gates trail instead go get to twin peaks. Nice smell, nice greenery.

intense run with the incline through the forest but breaking through and getting the twin peaks view was amazing. a better run than hike.

Trail entrance is discreet. City parking allows only 2 hour - impossible to expore much. Beautiful forest. Nice vegetation. Foggy so can't see any view.

Not too difficult, well trafficked trails. Especially as you approach Twin Peaks. Great views!
