Created in 2015, the Creeks to Peaks Trail takes you from Glen Canyon Park’s Islais Creek to the top of Twin Peaks— an ascent of some 800 feet. Already gorgeous Glen Canyon Park just got a major makeover with new stairways and signed trails. As you traverse the area from south to north, you’ll climb gradually out of the park. After exiting Glen Canyon Park, arrive at the base of Twin Peaks. Using trails and stairs, you’ll climb toward views that get better with every step. Once you summit both peaks, head down to their famous overlook, Christmas Tree Point.
