Overview

Brought to you by Weekend Sherpa

The trails winding up Mount Sutro are one of San Francisco’s best-kept secrets. Most of this land is owned by UCSF, and many don’t know the trails are open to the public. A 2-mile (round-trip) hike here passes through a forest of sky-high, ivy-wrapped eucalyptus that opens up to a meadow of native wildflowers that’s perfect for a picnic. From the Edgewood trailhead, trace your way through the eucalyptus on the Woodland Canyon Trail where on sunny days shafts of sunlight break through the canopy (and even on foggy days there’s a sublime beauty)…..

SLUG is now defunct, I believe, and so the garden at the intersection of 7th and Lawton is simply the Garden for the Environment. South of Lawton, past the large open space, is White Crane Springs Community Garden, which was also formerly a SLUG site.
