Northern California may not enjoy as much beach weather as its southern counterpart, but that doesn’t stop San Franciscans from enjoying the great outdoors. When the temperature begins to rise in late spring, you’ll see residents flock to the many parks and other natural areas that dot the city. These are the ones you shouldn’t miss:

The Presidio

Boasting over 24 miles of trails that wind around the north of the city, just south of the golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio is one of the best hiking spots in the Bay Area. If cycling is more your scene, rent a bike to breeze around the 14 miles of paved roads. Either way, you’ll be able to take in the gorgeous views of Alcatraz Island and of the bay.

GrandView Park

Known as Turtle Hill among locals, Grandview Park is a small but comfortable park in the southwest of the city. Its most striking feature is its tiled steps, which transformed a pedestrian facility into a much-beloved work of art. This is definitely an Instagram-worthy place.

Dolores Park

Though it has a reputation for being popular with hipsters, Dolores Park is enjoyed by everyone. On a nice day, you can expect to find locals being active on the various tennis, basketball, and multi-purpose courts or just leisurely laying out enjoying the sun. Come and enjoy some Vitamin D while you bite into a to-go sandwich.

Twin Peaks

Sitting high above the buildings of Downtown, Twin Peaks offers some of the best views of the city. It’s a bit of a journey to get to the top, a trek exacerbated by the fact that there isn’t any public transportation available, but once you’re there, the image of the bridges alone is worth it.

Golden Gate Park

The rectangular Golden Gate Park covers 1,000 acres and, with its historic Japanese Tea Garden and Conservatory of Flowers, is the most beloved green space for many in San Francisco. Though its name would suggest otherwise, the Golden Gate Park does not actually border the Golden Gate Bridge, so plan to visit both landmarks separately.
