  • It's an imposing tower, and I always wanted to visit the base of it. However, at least when I visited, it's controlled access only. You can get close by foot or bike, or for better views try the Twin Peaks observation area.
  • The hills and area are pretty with great views but the tower is ugly. I don’t get it. With San Francisco’s beautiful skyline and “nature sensibilities”, with Golden Gate Park, the Presidio and all the small parks and lovely hills to climb; and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge, how in the world did this ugly structure get approved in the 70s?
