However, this time decided to head east along the Battery East Trail (pic 7).
The Battery East Trail's curving wood stairway has 153 steps (pics 8 through 13). It descends to west Crissy Field near the Warming Hut.
Back up the stairs again, turned onto the Presidio Promenade Trail (pic 14), heading south via Crissy Field Overlook (pic 15) and down past the stables to say hi to the friendly hosses (pic 16).
Up the Park Trail and from there continuing up on the Cemetery Overlook Connector Trail (98 steps), past the Frog Woman Rock temp art installation in the forest (pics 17, 18, 19).
Out at the overlook's south entrance, continued past Inspiration Point to the Arguello Gate (last pic: I like this bench: just before exiting the park here).
