West of Twin Peaks is actually a district on the residential west side of San Francisco. It includes some of the following neighborhoods: Golden Gate Heights, Forest Hill, Forest Hill Extension, West Portal, Saint Francis Wood, Westwood Highlands, Balboa Terrace, Mt Davidson Manor, Miraloma Park, Sherwood Forest, Westwood Park, and Ingleside Terraces. As its name alludes, it’s just west of the famous Twin Peaks. Its sweeping hills are lined with gorgeous homes, spacious lots, an abundance of bright green landscaping, three parks, two hills and mountains to explore, and the O’Shaughnessy Hollow and Reservoir Lands along the outer edge of Glen Canyon. 

The weather stays quite beautiful in this area, never dipping below the mid-sixties or pushing past the seventies, on average, so it's never a poor time to venture out with your dog. San Francisco can get a bit windy, at times, so you may want to be prepared with a light jacket.

This neighborhood is incredibly natural. The larger lot sizes allow for front lawns, landscaping, and room along the edges of the sidewalk for plenty of grass. As you might expect, there are a fair amount of hills in these neighborhoods, which may make it a little bit of a challenge for elderly dogs or pups with joint issues. However, the hills offer gradual rise and fall which makes it a little easier. You won't experience unnavigable steepness anywhere. In fact, it should be enjoyable! 

If you fancy a bit of an incline, venture over to Mt. Davidson and enjoy the wonderful view from its peak. It’s scalable in a short period of time and should be easy for any dog in good health. However, make sure to bring water for both you and your dog if you plan on a hike, as it can get a little warm, especially in the summer.

The parks and greenways available in the West of Twin Peaks District are Hawk Hill Park in the Forest Hill Neighborhood, the Edge Hill Mountain Path in Forest Hill Extension, Mount Davidson and Miraloma Park in Miraloma, The Sir Francis Wood greenway on Santa Clara Avenue, and Aptos Park in Mount Davison Manor. Every one of these options will offer you a nice, green terrain to tread on. However, none of them advertise off-leash acceptance, so use your best judgment in deciding whether or not to keep your dog tethered. One last option is to venture to the outer edge of the district and check out the O’Shaughnessy Hollow. This hiking trail ventures up and down hills of the Glenn Canyon with beautiful views of nature and the surrounding city from its higher points which can make for an interesting stroll with your hike-happy pup at your side.
