Crossing just above the 37 older Elk steps: 2, 3, 4, 5
A short distance from here, rising from the main eastside trail, newer steps start up. The first flight, the longest, leads to a short dirt stretch - 133 steps to some rocks: 6 thru 14
Following this trail, connected me with another 34 steps: 15 thru 23
Another short, narrow dirt stretch, and 17 more newer wood steps: 24 thru 33
This connects with the main eastside stairway that climbs to Christopher Park in Diamond He9ights - 77 steps up to the viewbench and 92 steps total for this last flight: 34 thru 53
So for these connecting steps-and-dirt-trails: 133 + 34 + 17 + 92 for a total of 276 for this particular route.
You can try other connectors; for example, one trail I like down from the dead-end of Crags Court in Diamond Heights (at the garden) curves down to the main trail with 184 steps.
