  • This is the literal high point within Golden Gate park and it is well worth it for the views. It seems to be somewhat of a hidden gem as there were very few people on top during a gorgeous day.  more »
  • We got some of the best pictures of the park around Strawberry Hill. The water, bridges, trees and birds are all really amazing. It was early morning and the light through the trees was almost over...  more »
  • Love the steep hike !
  • Had a wonderful afternoon in the Golden Gate Park, some lovely trails to walk, and some fantastic wildlife, even saw a Hummingbird around the lake. There are Turtles in the lake and some were on a branch sunning themselves, we also saw a bird of prey but was not able to identify the species. Lovely day out.
