Catch a Sunrise at Ina Coolbrith Park

Rate this Adventure San Francisco Ina Coolbrith Park

Added by Lisa Bao

Amazing views of the San Francisco skyline reward you after a quick and steep uphill walk.

This tucked away neighborhood gem is less than a square block in size, but offers some of the best views of San Francisco. After a quick, but steep, 5 minute walk, you'll be rewarded with incredible views of: the city skyline, Coit Tower, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge. There are a few benches available for you to sit and catch the sunrise/sunset, or enjoy some packed food while you take in the views.

It's a quiet and clean spot that many neighborhood dogs often visit during their morning stroll, so definitely a good place to find some tranquil moments amidst the city hustle and bustle.

Park around Taylor/Pacific in Nob Hill and walk up Taylor for about 5 minutes to get to this spot.

If coming for sunset, go to Coit Liquor or New Russian Hill Market and grab a bottle of wine to enjoy at the top.
