Mount Davidson – the smaller, taller forested mountain just to the south-west of Mount Sutro. Like Mount Sutro, it’s a forest surrounded by neighborhoods. Unlike Mount Sutro, it has a landmark cross on top, visible above the trees.
How did it get that way?
If you took historian Jacquie Proctor’s hiking tour of Mt. Davidson for SFFA last year, these questions were answered.
But whether or not you did: you are invited to her ALL NEW slideshow this summer about the history of the City Beautiful Movement-inspired neighborhoods on the slopes of San Francisco’s highest hill––Mt. Davidson––as well as the story of the unique City park and monument at its peak, as featured in her book, San Francisco’s West of Twin Peaks.
