Join Glen Park historian Evelyn Rose on this moderately difficult 1.3-mile stroll through Glen Canyon as we discover the natural and cultural history of this Significant Natural Resource Area in the heart of San Francisco.

Cows ruminating; chemists concocting; elk ranging; aeronauts parachuting; and activists protecting. All this and more comprise the amazing history of Glen Canyon Park!
