Now open for RSVPs. We meet at 1:00 PM in front of the Glen Park Library which is less than one block from the Glen Park BART Station. We will have no lunch stop on this walk so I advise eating lunch before the walk. At 1:15 PM we will start walking through Glen Park and then up one of the best stairways in SF, the Harry Street Steps. Then we walk to the Diamond Heights Center for a restroom stop.

Then to the top of Twin Peaks. At an elevation of 922' it is widely believed to have SF's best views. Unfortunately, we won't have much time for the views because of a lack of restrooms on/near Twin Peaks.

Then we walk to Noe Valley and Castro Heights. We will see the street where part of the 1948 classic movie "I Remember Mama" was filmed. We will have good restroom stops and many stairways on our route to our endpoint: the 24th Street BART Station at 5:30 PM.

We will not be having dinner at Aslam's Rasoi as we did on the past walks because their ratings with the SF Health Department have fallen.

All photos below are all shown in the correct order of this walk's route. Below is on Laidley St. on the way to the Harry St. Steps.

Below, just before we climb Twin Peaks, I am counting the number of people who plan to join us for dinner at Aslam's Rasoi.
