Living in West of Twin Peaks

West of Twin Peaks is a quiet-ish enclave with various transport links, making it more of a bedroom community than a place San Franciscans go to party. Here are some of West of Twin Peaks Highlights:

Mount Davidson

The peak at the heart of the neighborhood defines its shape, with a spider web of circuitous streets spreading out from it. Mount Davidson is heavily forested, with several miles of trails and stunning viewpoints over the city. An excellent place to start your journey is at 298 Juanita Way.

Look out for the giant concrete cross stationed here in 1923 and subsequently auctioned off. It is owned by The Council of Armenian American Organizations of Northern California and augmented with a plaque to commemorate the 1915 Armenian Genocide.

Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve

Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve sits to the northwest of the district. The Fairy Gates trailhead will take you into the heart of a lush, peaceful nature reserve deep in the city's heart.

Owned by the University of California San Francisco, the Reserve covers 61 acres and contains over five miles of trails and more than 900ft of elevation gain. Trail runners, dog walkers, and mountain bikers share this space with hikers. Herds of goats brought in by the university help crop the underbrush.

Gregangelo's Velocity Arts & Entertainment

The Gregangelo Museum is a genuinely unique SF experience. It's a labor of love for local artist Gregangelo Herrera, who built his paean to sensory overload over the last 40 years in his SF home at 2225 San Leandro Way. Featured in documentaries by Netflix and the BBC, the museum bills itself as an “immersive art experience” and is set in stunning gardens.

Psychedelic patterns, mosaics, collections, displays, and performance spaces collide in a weird and wonderful exploration of kitsch, camp, and extravagance. There's nothing like it. You can even hold a birthday party or quirky team-building experience there.

Miraloma Steps – Dragon’s Tail Staircase

San Francisco has many hidden-away painted staircases (as you might expect from one of the country's hilliest cities). The Dragon’s Tail Staircase at Miraloma Steps on Bella Vista Way is the most recent addition to the Mosaic Stairs project, a set of 10 community-created decorated stairways distributed throughout the city.

The Miraloma Steps opened in July 2020 and feature a mural of a scaly, fire-breathing dragon and the universe at its summit.

West of Twin Peaks is a versatile neighborhood where you can repair for a quiet escape from downtown SF or explore local attractions, eateries, and nightlife. There's plenty of greenery, more than your fair share of spectacular views, and some surprisingly affordable property.
