Just before the foot, a short offshoot to the boardwalk and main tree-canopy eastside trail: 12, 13, 14, 15
Near the boardwalk: pic 16
Up, then down again: 17, 18
There’s been more trail widening and smoothing on the formerly nearly impenetrable trail that now extends to Portola. Used to have an easier time foraging for blackberries here before all the clearing started, but there’s now an offshoot trail where I was able to score some ripe ones that were previously unreachable.
No steps yet at the steepish zigzaggy part at the end of the playing field’s chainlink fence, but this section has been smoothed and widened since my last visit so it’s easier to ascend: 19 thru 27
Back out again to an upper trail: 28, 29
The north stairway (79 steps) to the climbing rocks: 30 thru 34
At the top of these steps, looking down at the south stairway: 35, 36, 37, 38
This trail has seen some work too: 39
For the highest eastside canyon trail, just below Christopher Park, this time took the curvingly extended stairs. There used to be just a few old wood steps up here: 40, 41, 42, 43, 44
Upon reaching the bus shelter at the south end of the Safeway parking lot in Diamond Heights to check the wait for the #52 Excelsior back down into Glen Park, again a 16-minute wait. So crossed Diamond Heights Blvd. to the convenient walkway that takes pedstrians to the top of 28th in Noe Valley; down to Noe for the more frequently running #24 Divisadero.
28th Street: 45 thru 50
