Best Hike in the City 

Glen Canyon Park

The softball fields surrounding the Glen Park Recreation Center are no different than others in the city, but travel north, behind the tall stone building, and a path leads through a stand of eucalyptus and into a lush forest. The trees form a canopy over the trail. Keep to the left and find a rope swing. Then follow the path around to a boulder-strewn ravine, perfect for rock climbing. The trail back leads to a series of planked bridges spanning a marsh, zigzagging through the tall grasses to keep hikers from trampling the lilies and other water plants.
