This hike explores the wide, quiet, tree-lined streets and enormous houses of St. Francis Wood and walks the length of Stern Grove's peaceful valley. We also take a look at a very interesting and historic hospital. There are two versions of this walk, one shorter and less hilly, the other with more views.
