On this hike, you’ll climb from the Castro District to Twin Peaks—and back—in about 5 miles and two hours. You’ll summit three hilltops with panoramic views of the city, bridges, and bay. Along your route, you’ll visit a late nineteenth- century mansion, slide down the Seward Street slides, climb epic stairways to the top of Twin Peaks, stand at the foot of Sutro Tower, and walk alongside a peaceful eucalyptus forest. This hike has some sensational views, so make sure you’re hiking on a sunny day.
