Glen Canyon Park Trail Reviews

Great hiking area which gets you into nature with leaving the city! Lots of opportunity to break a sweat- there are uphills and stairs but also you can just take the easier routes to walk your dog. There are playgrounds for the kids and can be your launchpad to hike all the way up to Twin Peaks. Highly recommend this area!

Glen Canyon Park is a great place to hike! There are actually 3 main trails with several connectors so you could easily put in a 5 mile day! This is a very popular place for dog walkers as well. If you continue up the Canyon you’ll come to a rock cropping that’s used by local climbers for some bouldering practice. Keep going up the canyon some more and you’ll eventually hit Portola Ave and the base of Twin Peaks. If you want to add some miles and elevation do a loop up to the peaks and back. And be sure to stop by Glen park retail district on Diamond St for some great post hike snacks!
