At the top of Sutro Forest’s uppermost Inner Greenbelt trail at Johnstone, just a few yards away the magical Fairy Gates Trail beckons, first pic.
Fairy Gates Trail: 2 through 8.
Down from the Fairy Gates to merge with the nicely switchbacked Edgewood Trail. Only downer here was all the logs seen laying around from excessive treefelling in the area. I did get a kick out of the new carved icon.
Edgewood Trail: 9 thru 22.
The Edgewood Trail comes out at the redbricked street named Edgewood, a few blocks long (pic 23), to end up at its north dead-end for vehicles, Farnsworth Lane (149 steps): 24 thru 31. Farnsworth descends to Willard, a few yards uphill from Parnassus where the crosstown #43 stops.
