Disembarked at Visitacion Ave. and downhilled to the top of the park’s longest stairway (195 steps), Visitacion to Campbell, to experience its green-and-yellow beauty: 1 thru 14.
At the foot, started back up again on Delta in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood for the second openspace stairway/trail back into the park.
Last time wen trudging up Delta, this steep walkers’ path had potholes that needed filling and eight very old concrete steps at the foot.
Now there are 10 new wood-and-concrete steps with wood railings on both sides when you first start up. The walkway has been repaved and it’s now a smooth climb: 15 thru 22
Had to check out the greenness of this second Vis Valley trailHead that starts at Ervine and Wilde.
At first you don’t see any stairs. After winding steeply around a bit, 57 steps lead to the picnic area just off Mansell/Visiitacion:23 thru 32
Downhill now for another favorite steepish trail that descends to Lake McNab with six switchbacks, then back up again:33 thru 42
