Look for the BART station. If you're a passenger on the freeway you can snap a picture from the car window.

Visible during daylight from Bart at Lafayette station. Interesting and powerful. But not worth more than the 45 second stoppage of train to board passengers.

It's more impressive when standing at the bottom of the hill up close vs. across the parking lot and station platform, but the train is where most of the Hill of Cross audience sits.
