    Nestled among San Francisco’s Glen Park, Diamond Heights, and Miraloma Park neighborhoods, the 70-acre Glen Canyon Park offers a spectacular assortment of hiking options that range from a relaxing stroll to hair-raising with a view. The park encompasses the site of the first commercial manufacturing of dynamite in the U.S. It incorporates the free-flowing Islais Creek and the associated riparian habitat, an extensive grassland with adjoining trees that supports breeding pairs of red-tailed hawks and great horned owls, prominent rock outcrops, and arid patches covered by “coastal scrub” plant communities. In all, about 63 acres of the park and hollow are designated as undeveloped natural area. Take this virtual stroll of the park courtesy of photographer Jim Watkins and the Harvey Milk Photo Center at the web link.
