It’s a waste of time when I must take more than one or two buses to get to where I’m going. Nor do I care to have to dodge the many bicyclists moving along the paved Coastal Trail under the Bridge. The trail soon turns to dirt and most of the cyclists don't continue this way. If they do, it's necessary to walk their bikes down battery stairways to the trail below.
So a lot more pleasant for me to enter the park at the 14th Avenue trailhead, climb the dunes boardwalk stairway, stop briefly at the boardwalk's two benches, then head up Rob Hill on Battery Caulfield Road past the dunes area on the west side of the street (first photo).
At Washington, headed uphill on a trail that curves round the Rob Hill Campground. As I reached the trailhead of a favorite short trail (a yellow fire hydrant here) that leads to the back of the Fort Scott neighborhood near the Community Garden (second photo), noticed that a new short stairway has been added here to access the campground.
More stone can now be seen at the sides of the Dragonfly Creek bridge as the daylighting work continues.
Curved around Fort Scott and crossed over to the Batteries to Bluffs east trailhead. The last two photos were taken on the west side where the two new railings are. After reaching Battery Crosby, continued to Lincoln and the Connector Trail stairway back up to the Immigrant Point Overlook area, then down Battery Caulfield past the beautiful Lobos Creek Valley Overlook.
