In collaboration with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, the SFMTA is working with the community to explore ways to make the Twin Peaks Boulevard “Figure 8” work better for the many visitors who enjoy the Peaks every day.The project will address traffic safety and improve bicycle and pedestrian access by creating a dedicated space for people walking and biking on Twin Peaks Boulevard.
On July 13, 2016, the Twin Peaks Pilot Promenade was implemented to test out a new configuration for Twin Peaks Boulevard as we continue to study permanent solutions.

In July 2016, the SFMTA and the Recreation and Parks Department implemented the Twin Peaks Pilot Promenade to test out a new configuration for Twin Peaks Boulevard as we continue to study permanent solutions.
Twin Peaks is a world-famous tourist destination with 64 acres of open space, is home to the endangered Mission Blue Butterfly, and has three developed trail systems: the Peaks Trail, the Mission Blue Butterfly Trail, and the Portola Trail. These trails provide public access to this undeveloped natural area.
- Repurpose a portion of the existing roadway from vehicle use to pedestrian and bicycle use;
- Better link pedestrian crossings with the trail sections;
- Recommend realignment of the Bay Area Ridge Trail to cross over Twin Peaks Blvd; and
- Identify opportunities to improve bicycle and pedestrian access.
Twin Peaks Pilot Promenade
In July 2016, the SFMTA implemented a pilot project to test a new roadway configuration around Twin Peaks. The western half of the Twin Peaks "Figure 8" roadway was opened to two-way vehicle traffic, and the eastern half was opened to people walking and biking. During the next year, staff will evaluate how the new configuration in terms of technical feasibility as well as public input and preferences.
