Why locals recommend it
It’s a really cool spot, and it’s definitely not visited enough. I wouldn't necessarily call it a hike; it's an uphill walk that does a spiral around the hill until you get to the very top. You have unobstructed views of San Francisco, Daly City, and Sutro Tower. There’s one official trail and some man-made shortcuts cut into the mountain. They're not sanctioned or anything, so some of them are a little rocky and slippery. It’s very dog-friendly—people have their dogs off the leash just kind of walking up the hill with them.

The best view of SF. A fun, huge tree swing. 1/3 of a mile (8 min.) walk north.
