For the first time in years, snow is coming back to the hills of the Bay Area. And while the snowfall won’t be legendary, it’ll be enough to scrape together a snowman and maybe even a few snowballs before it melts away.
With flakes already falling well below 1,000 feet in parts of the Bay Area, here are the nearby hills to head for if you want to dip a toe—or even a boot—in the snow.
Aim for the Radio Mountain Summit Loop to see snow on the hill separating South SF from the city itself.
Head to Mill Valley and into Mount Tam State Park to find countless trails and roads lined with snow. The area around the open-air Cushing Memorial Amphitheater often gets dusted and has views of the city—or just drive up to the top at East Peak.
Drive along Grizzly Peak Boulevard, above the city of Berkeley and the UC campus, toward Grizzly Peak and the Grizzly Peak Trail for a chance at snowy patches and great views of San Francisco across the bay.
