End: Glen Park BART
This fall, the Wanderers are determined to hike the entire length of San Francisco’s latest urban adventure: the Crosstown Trail. We plan to cover the 17-mile route in a series of four hikes, scheduled once a month from September to December.
Our November hike is a 3-mile section exploring the hidden trails behind the Laguna Honda Hospital, fun canyons and outcrops in Glen Canyon Park, and a greenway that is steps away from Glen Park BART. From the endpoint at Glen Park BART, hikers can choose to head home or return to Forest Hill Muni (or other destinations) via public transit or car share.
Optional: Those who would like an extended hike can continue with the group and hike back to the starting point at Forest Hill. Bring a picnic lunch if you are sticking around for the return hike. The route back is 3.5 miles and challenging, with several hills along the way. We will explore Mount Davidson (San Francisco’s highest point), Edgehill Open Space, and several staircase paths. Estimated end-time for the round-trip option is 3:30 pm.
Save-the-date for the final hike in the series: Sunday, Dec. 15.
