Pretty easy hike, not too much to see. Not one of my favorites other than its dog friendly
Glen Canyon Park boasts easy to tougher trail-walking options, including the new Creeks to Peaks from Islais Creek the top of Twin Peaks, a lively 4 mile round trip. Birding is terrific especially morning and evening. Listen!!
Great trail, quick and some points feel like you've left the city.
Fun little hike in the city without a full day's commitment. Some great areas meandering along Islais Creek and also great views of the canyon itself when the trail winds out from the canyon floor to the edges and boulders up top. Popular with dog walkers and people of all ages.
