Do you, by any chance, have a MAP with all those names labeled on it?

Craig - Good to see someone's paying attention to their surroundings, if you're not a native, well, you should be. There's a few more, like, Perlata Heights, Clarendon Heights, John McClaren Park (the biggest park in San Francisco), Crocker Amazon, Golden Gate Heights, Cathedral Hill, Apparel City Hill, and more! For the cynic who wants to see a map: There's more than 1000 public maps posted all over San Francisco that show these hills; just look in any Muni Bus Shelter or metro stop and you'll see a map with all these hills list and more....

I know the best place: Click here!
One thing I don't understand is why Golden Gate Heights is not counted as a hill...

Isn't Apparel City hill part of Happy Valley?

This is actually another question for "hill" buffs. Does anyone know where "Silver Hill" was? I assume it was one that has been renamed. This was circa 1920's and 1930's and was the location of the Salvation Army Training College. I have a picture of it, and it was a good sized building.

None of those sources seem to list Liberty Hill. Liberty Hill is the area near the southern edge of Dolores Park.

Silver Hill...could that be where Silver Avenue is as it approaches Mission?
