In a city rife with impressive views, this Castro peak may be the most striking vantage point. Clamber up to the top of the hill's distinctive red rock (which was quarried for brick-making in the 1800s), and you'll be rewarded with a sweeping vista from downtown to Twin Peaks. The park is scalable via a paved staircase or a more challenging, winding trail at 15th Street—both routes only take about 15 minutes. At the top, you'll find a windy cliff that's ideal for sunrises and sunsets. Dogs and kids scramble among the rocks, and red-tailed hawks soar overhead. The Randall Museum, a natural history children's museum, is nearby, as well as tennis and basketball courts, playing fields and flower-filled gardens.
