Grateful to be spared from the depressing vandalism of the treekillers while on the lower Historic Trail, the second trail down from the top of Stanyan. 16 steps for the Stanyan trailhead.
About halfway along noticed that a rough trail down from Belgrave, where it connects with the lower Historic, has been cleared somewhat. Might they be thinking of acknowledging this old trail that offshoots to the north off the main Belgrave trail above/behind Stanyan homes? Pix 5, 6, 7
Lower Historic Trail, starting at Stanyan and climbing to Medical Center Way: 8 thru 19
Medical Center Way views: 20, 21
But depressing to see the vandalism done by the deforesters to the East Ridge Trail: 22, 23, 2e
The summit: 25, 26, 27
Down to the Edgewood Trail that switchbacks out to the south end of Edgewood Ave.: 28 thru 41
A few blocks to the north on Edgewood Ave. (pic 42) from the end of the Edgewood Trail will take you to the top of the 149 Farnsworth steps that descend to Willard: Last five pix.
