Spanish conquistadors called the area “Los Pechos de la Chola” or “Breasts of the Indian Maiden”. Consequently, the settlers devoted the area to ranching. When San Francisco passed under American control during the 19th century, it was renamed “Twin Peaks”.
It has a scenic drive to its 910-foot summit, and offers a 360 degree panoramic view of the city. Many bird species, insects and vegetation thrive in these areas. Twin Peaks is one of the few remaining habitats for an endangered species; the lycaenid butterfly.To the north is one of the city’s many reservoirs. Furthermore ,the San Francisco Police Department Academy is at the base of the peaks.
