Headed up the east stairway (first pic) with its various steps of wood, logs, and concrete. Descended the Painted Rock stairway, then up the connector stairway to the El Camino del Mar Trail and to its end at the upper parking lot Overlook.
Retraced my steps on the El Camino all the way to its end at the park’s uppermost stairway (second pic) that will take you up to the end of the Legion of Honor parking lot.
Up the short Battle of the Bulge trail (third photo) that ascends to the VA Hospital parking lot. They’re shoring up the north cliffedge here; there’s this huge retaining wall with construction still ongoing. However, the Battle of the Bulge (19 steps total) is still perfectly walkable, part of the trail still surrounded by a scaffolding. This is a convenient way to get from the VA Hospital parking lot down to the Legion of Honor area.
Always find more berries along winding 34th Ave. in Lincoln Park than in other spots because the walkers’ trail (N-S, from the museum down to Clement) is on the opposite side of the street from the berry bushes. There’s no sidewalk or trail on the berry-bush side, just the curvy street and the golf course, so I need to be careful of vehicles (and golfers) when walking on this side.
