Batteries to Bluffs Trail eastside: 1 thru 24
Halfway along my favorite trail a couple of guys were repairing a rough spot but were letting people through.
Trailhead for Marshall’s Beach: 25
The footbridge now has a new stairway; no more closed trail on the west side: 26 thru 39
West side up to Battery Crosby and down 16 steps from the battery. Up to Lincoln: 40 thru 52
Got a staircount of 463 this time for San Francisco’s longest stairway, but will recount next time due to the trailwork encountered.
Crossing Lincoln for the Connector Trail (208 steps) to Immigrant Point Overlook: 53 thru 62
Wording (Woodrow Wilson) on the Overlook’s stone wall: “We opened the gates to all the world and said Let all men who want to be free come to us and they will be welcome’”
The overlook is dedicated to those immigrants who entered through the Golden Gate.
