There were already steps snaking up the west slope but they’ve been added to and improved upon. Starting up the stairway from the SW side (opposite the dog play area),
counted around 100 from the foot to near the summit rocks (see first foto). Approximately 41 more curl around up here.
Several rustic, wood-and-wire fences have been added throughout the park.
A wood-railed short stairway has been replaced with a new set of wooden steps (about 22 – second pic). These lead to a new walkway that nicely connects the main westside stairway with this shorter one (third photo).
Didn’t count the eastside steps from the summit today, but started from the upper bench: 109 to the lower bench. The east side steps are still steep and uneven, but there’s now a replacement for the last set of stairs (about 19). This part descends from the lowest bench to near the foot of the Randall Museum, making it 128 steps all the way down from the top bench.
