Down the first 19 steps (pix 6, 7) from the west side of the VA Hospital parking lot to a short trail I’ve long claimed as my own. More steps will take you down to the Fort Miley buildings near the picnic area.
Over to the top of the sandy zigzag trail to descend to the west trailhead for the El Camino del Mar Trail that’s accessible from the upper parking lot overlook: 8 thru 13. Passed the connector steps between the El Camino and the main Lands End/Coastal Trail, pix 14, 15.
The El Camino del Mar Trail’s footbridge is a good place to check for berries, pic 16.
46 steps up to the Legion of Honor parking lot’s west edge (17, 18, 19). Onto a golf course sidewalk and around to another trail, one you wouldn’t realize was there unless you were already familiar with it. This short, “secret,” trail descends, at times steeply, alongside lots of blackberry bushes and can be seen well from the steps.
It meanders out to partway down the eastside stairway (120-ish steps: 20 thru 28).
Moving east on the Lands End Trail towards Eagles Point: pic 29.
The renovated Eagles Point Overlook area at the park’s east trailhead now has a lot more of that new-plantings netting since my last visit, running down below the trail to a viewspot where people used to like to perch. Now they can’t.
Top of the Lincoln Park Golf Course stairway on the east side, down to the west dead-end of California Street near 32nd Ave. in the Outer Richmond neighborhood, last pic, about 52 steps.
