Twin Peaks is open for biking and walking!
After years of outreach culminating in a series of meetings last year, two City agencies are working together to prioritize biking and walking at Twin Peaks. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is coordinating with the Recreation and Parks Department (RPD) to open a portion of Twin Peaks Boulevard exclusively for people biking and walking.
This incredibly scenic location deserves the best visitor experience possible for enjoying the wonders of open space in an urban environment. The proposal is a step in the right direction and it needs your support. On April 19, the SFMTA Board of Directors will be looking to approve a road closure on one side of Twin Peaks Boulevard, which would allow one side of the “Figure 8” for vehicles, opening the more scenic side up to people biking and walking.
We’ve heard from our members, local residents and cycling groups that this pilot project makes sense and will help determine how to best accommodate all visitors. Under the shadow of Sutro Tower, this is a popular location for biking, hill-climbing and sightseeing for both native San Franciscans and tourists alike. Join us, your fellow SF Bicycle Coalition members and many community partners in making this vision a reality.
