As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Special Twin Peaks Urban Hike

  • 04 May 2019
  • 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Twin Peaks Tavern, 401 Castro St, San Francisco, CA 94114


Registration is closed

Join Cornell Norcal for a special urban hike through the Castro District and Noe Valley to the summit of twin peaks.

Join Cornell University alumni and friends for an often spoken about - but rarely traveled urban hike to the top of San Francisco’s Twin Peaks.

We'll hike from the intersection of Castro and Market Street through the Castro District.  Then, we’ll begin climbing the many hidden stairs of Noe Valley and Eureka Valley until we reach the base of twin peaks.

Enjoy the incredible views from the top of both twin peaks.  Be prepared to be amazed at the views from the tallest peak in San Francisco.

Date Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 2:00PM.  Please arrive 10 minutes early.

Location The courtyard outside of Twin Peaks Tavern on the corner of Castro Street and Market Street (Twin Peaks Tavern, 401 Castro St, San Francisco, CA 94114).  There is plenty of parking everywhere in the Castro District

Trail Length: About 4 miles on a mixed urban travel with approximately 1,000 feet of vertical elevation change.  There will be plenty of stairs during this hike

Post Hike Meal: We will announce the restaurant location (in the nearby castro district) via email the night before the hike.

Special Notes Wear RED so we can easily keep the group together.  Bring a bottle of water and sunscreen - this is urban hiking at is roughest.  Dress warmly as the wind at the top of twin peaks is often quite strong.

Cost:  $3/$5 (Member /non-Member)
