A short distance along this trail is the dunes boardwalk stairway that climbs to the left behind the residences. From the boardwalk came out at Battery Caulfield Road, continuing uphill to Washington Blvd. and Immigrant Point Overlook where the curvy Connector Trail descends to Lincoln. Crossed Lincoln where a trail leads to Battery Crosby (first pic). Second photo is looking back towards Immigrant Point Overlook from atop Battery Crosby. At the west side of the brightly graffitied-upon old battery is the Batteries to Bluffs west trailhead.
The BTB's looking greener now. Third pic: just past View Point on the east side. After one puffs up to the east trailhead, there's still a detour due to the ongoing construction of one of the Coastal Trail Overlooks. Crossed Lincoln into the Fort Scott neighborhood where there are picnic tables.
Instead of continuing east on the Coastal Trail to the bridge area and #28 bus stop, decided to loop around to my beginning. This entailed walking all the way through Fort Scott to its south end and heading up one of the several forested trails in this westside area between Fort Scott and Rob Hill Campground (fourth pic).
Came out at Washington, the community garden and playground a short distance ahead. Curving around, was soon once again back on Battery Caulfield Rd. heading downhill this time, entering the dunes boardwalk trail from the west side and back to my beginning at California and Park Presidio.
