I’d been quite fond of an old fence that separated an easternmost section of forest from the street. Had expressed disappointment that it’d been removed.
My visit to wander in this beautiful section of forest was made even more enjoyable y the discovery of a good-looking new fence to replace that old one.
Passing the top of the Lyon stairway (290 steps, first pic), entered the park thru the Broadway Gate: 2, 3
This is a favorite section of forest in the park ANYway. but now even more gorgeous lately after the rains: 4 thru 8
The fence is laid out just like the old one was. You enter the residential area thru an opening in the fence like before: 9 thru 21
The new fence also separates the forest from the street like it used to.
Onward to descend the 62 upper to lower Simonds Loop brick stairs: 22 thru 29
Further west, Mountain Lake Park: 30 thru 33
103 steps to the Marine Cemetery Vista Overlook: 34
Upper Amatury Loop stairs: pic 35
Park Trail: 36
A trail east from a residential area just above the Fort Scott Community Garden: 37, 38, 39, 40
