The radio towers on 1314-foot San Bruno Mountain are a common sight for Bay Area residents both during the day and at night. While you can drive to the top of the mountain, I think it’s much more satisfying to get to the summit on your own two feet. There is signi?cant elevation gain on this hike, but the route is pretty short, so it should be achievable for most. This is a straightforward uphill climb to the top, and it’s packed with fantastic views. Looking north, you’ll be able to see the ocean, the bay, and the city in between. To the south, the peninsula unfolds beneath you.
