In the peaks of Diamond Heights in western San Francisco sits Glen Canyon, which hosts varied habitats that existed in the area before development occurred throughout the city. The canyon occupies 70 acres and is open to the public. According to, "Glen Canyon contains one of the few stretches of historic free-flowing Islais Creek. Good for a pleasant stroll or outing with the dog, the park also hosts a community center, sports fields, children's camp, and tennis courts."

Enjoyable hike. The hike includes the only publicly accessible stream in San Francisco.

Very nice little hike. We liked exploring the stream w/ bridges and hanging out on the huge rock structures.

It's a great place to escape from the city. Not many choices to trail on but I do appreciate that it's located so nearby and that it's dog friendly. Has a small creek, lots of beautiful greens, and rock structure in few places.
