Bernal Heights Park
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.
If you want to see an incredible view of San Francisco, the Bay Bridge and surrounding areas, check out this short hike up the mountain.
This is another park with great city views, perfect to watch the sunset and take in the landscape that surrounds bernal hill. There is a swing that makes for great pictures! However, remember to dress in layers cause it tends to get chilly as the sun goes down.
“Great for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. Casual, near cute Precita Park. ”
“Amazing food, great location, and a patio! You might have to wait for a table but it's so worth it!”
“Fantastic cocktails and good craft brews. Good place to watch games. Dog friendly and you can bring in food from any one of the many establishments on Cortland Avenue. ”
“Erik's favorite brewery in the city. Great hazy IPAs and plenty of bottles/cans to-go. Family friendly until 7:30pm nightly, with lots of pinball machines, arcade games, shuffleboard, and ping pong. Food trucks Friday-Sunday.”
