Across the street from 38 Sussex Street in Glen Park is the beginning of Ohlone Way. Named after the Indian tribe that lived in the Bay Area before the Europeans arrived, it looks more like an Indian trail than a city street. The rutted dirt tracks are completely surrounded by trees and underbrush, leading the imaginative walker to imagine him or herself transported back in time ... to an Ohlone settlement?

Just a few blocks west, Sussex Street dead-ends at Glen Canyon Park. You can walk down into the park, which is one of San Francisco's least known and most secluded urban wildernesses. Glen Canyon Park is gorgeously unspoiled.
