There are no lookalike “Little Boxes” in the Forest Hill neighborhood. The whole area is a delightful gardenspot (first pic – Mesa near 9th Ave.) full of trees and squirrels. The narrow streets wind around and up, sometimes divided. From the east one looks directly across to Mount Sutro's west side (second photo: the Forest Knolls neighborhood as seen from Sola and Magellan), with Twin Peaks’ west side (Midtown Terrace) just beyond (third pic).
Today’s first stairway, after the short trail up into the neighborhood from behind the Forest Hills Metro Station, ascended from Castenada, about 77 steps (third foto). Next was Alton, about 90 steps (last pic).
Up steep Pacheco to 10th Avenue, then a meandering stroll several blox downhill on Inner Sunset streets Tenth, Ninth, and Eighth to the #43 stop at Seventh and Lawton, across the street from Garden for the Environment.
