Description:  This is a wonderful route that will take us through neighborhoods and greenways - up to Fairmount Open Space, down the Harry Street Steps, up Billy Goat Hill and through the Walter Haas Playground all the while enjoying great easterly views. We'll then head west through the bottom tip of Glen Park before heading towards Mt. Davidson - the highest peak in SF. We'll stop for lunch near the top. We'll head down towards O'Shaughnessy Blvd via some obscure, bushy trails.  Soon we'll  enter Glen Canyon Park from the north entrance and travel down the length of the canyon before returning to Glen Park BART station by way of the Glen Park Greenway.  Google Maps Link
