Now for the Sand Ladder down to Baker Beach. It swoops down from Lincoln, starting just a few yards west of the Batteries to Bluffs’ west trailhead (the first part of the BTB that curves down to Battery Crosby). First two pix.
Across from both these Lincoln Blvd. trailheads is the Connector Trail that climbs up from Lincoln to Immigrant Point Overlook (208 steps), pic 3.
Like last time, got about 250 for a Sand Ladder staircount. Didn’t bother poking about with my feet for possible buried steps this time. The outlines of the steps were clearly indented. Often could see only the indentations or tips of the infamous logs. Sand Ladder: 4 thru 19.
Baker Beach and the rocks where I like to sit to let the waves nibble at my feet when not actually wading: 20 thru 26.
The mini-sand ladder a tad further west has around 44 steps: 27, 28, 29.
A beachin’ trail thru a forested dune area, down to the westernmost parking lot for the main Baker Beach entrance: 30, 31, 32.
Upcoming, Part 3: Sutro Heights Park’s Balboa stairway near Ocean Beach.
