SAN FRANCISCO | Twin Peaks are two large hills near the geographical centre of San Francisco. Both hills have an elevation of about 925 feet (282 metres) with Christmas Tree Point offering panoramic views of the city and San Francisco Bay. It is believed that the native Ohlone people used the area as a lookout point, which was named “Los Pechos de la Chola” or “Breasts of the Indian Maiden” by Spanish Conquistadors in the early 18th century. The name was changed to Twin Peaks when the US took ownership of the city.

While up there, keep a look out for the diverse natural wildlife, including raccoons, skunks, opossums, white crowned sparrows, Red Tail Hawks, and the endangered Mission Blue Butterfly. There’s also an abundance of plant life, some of which can’t be found anywhere else in San Francisco.

Twin Peaks is accessible by car, but if you’re up for it the steep hike up the hill is great exercise.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
