Should be easy to access, but it is not. I feel sorry for all the people who have to put up with all the tourists. If you do find a place to park just to look at it, it’s underwhelming.

It was Ok, nothing special besides a curved street with flowers. The view from the top is nice but it is too crowded and not much spaces for tourists. Go somewhere else. Some other hills can provide great pictures as well

This was a pretty cool tourist spot to check out the Lombard street zig zag aka crooked street. Be prepared to see lots of tourists both walking up the hill as well as with vehicles going down through the crooked street. Definitely worth the time...More

Walked up from fisherman’s wharf which was very hilly but didn’t mind it. It was just a windy road with a lot of flower beds. Quite a lot of tours in little yellow cars going down the street driving like idiots! But I suppose if...More

So if you are staying in the Fisherman's Wharf area this is a nice walk...uphill. Recommend walking up to the "bottom" (lots of cool doors as you walk up the hill). It's fun watching all the crazy tourist standing in the road stopping traffic, because,...More

Lombard Street, billed as the crooked street in the world, lives up to it's name... wonder about the residents though with all the traffic and tourists, not to be missed

I suppose you really have to do Lombard Street in a car to get the full experience but we didn't have a car and walked it both ways. It was different.

We walked to Lombard St from our hotel at Fisherman’s Wharf area. Very nice day - Great temps in November. We certainly got a leg workout going up that steep hill! Fun to watch the cars drive the zig zag - and beautiful flower gardens....More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

Yes it is possible. There are sidewalks, but it will be hard, the hills are steep.
