This short hike covers the north side of Glen Canyon, as a short alternative to the previous hike in the lower sections. Start from Christopher Playground, but turn right before entering the canyon and follow the path west. Stay in the higher parts of the canyon until you see a few houses on high stilts to the right, then take the fork to the right upwards towards the buildings, leading to a path with stairs going up to Amber Dr.

Turn left on Amber Dr and follow the road until Cameo Way, where you turn right. Shortly before hitting Duncan St, take the stairs down to the right and make a left when you get to Amber Dr again. At the SFPD training facility, make a right and follow the grassy path leading back to the park and the shopping center parking lot.
