Probably the most incredible view of the entire bay area is just a 35 minute drive from Pillar Point RV Park...You will want to visit Twin Peaks. At an elevation of 925 it is just a few feet lower than the highest point in the bay area, Mount Davidson.
The Ohlone Indians frequented these hills centuries ago. The first Spanish conquistadors named the mountain, "Los Pechos de la Chola"...breasts of the indian maiden."  When the Americans took over in the 19th century, they renamed it Twin Peaks.  Today, the Twin Peaks Natural area is 31 acres managed and owned by the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department.
It is known for being one of few remaining habitats for the endangered Mission Blue butterfly.

The views are unmatchable! You can see Mount Tam to the left and Mount Diablo in front of you...the city of San Francisco and the bay is below...that's Market Street you see...to the far right is Silicon Valley.  

That three pronged antenna on top of Twin Peaks is known as Sutro tower and is used to transmit most bay area TV channels and even some radio stations.  There are bathrooms and telescopes at the observation area as well.

From Pillar Point, Just go highway 1 north, to 280 north and exit at San Jose avenue..

To get a real perspective of the bay area and enjoy a beautiful ride and day, put Twin peaks on your list of things to see and do when you visit Pillar Point RV Park.
