"Great Views - I hope you like hills"

There are two ways to access Coit Tower, at the top of Telegraph Hill Boulevard. The first, and most popular, is to drive up. You will be faced with some uphill portions, which may be a bit disconcerting if you are not used to this, but not to fear - there is actually (miraculously) parking at the top, and you will most certainly be rewarded with gorgeous views of the city and the bay. You can even take the time to look into the binoculars that are set up there.

The second way, which is probably less popular but considerably more exciting, is to walk to the top. The roads are steep but relatively quiet, and while you will be greeted by a parking lot at the summit of your hike, you can truly look at the views and think to yourself, "I earned this."

Regardless of how you get here (public transportation is an option as well, but is relatively self-explanatory), the views here are astounding and it is well worth the trip.

"The entrance to Coit Tower with beautiful views of the city and bay."

You have seen the picturesque Coit Tower, but do you know how to get there? Telegraph Hill Boulevard takes you on a winding, steep path directly up to Coit Tower. Magnificent views of the city and San Francisco Bay can been seen from your car. Don't forget to take a camera!
