Mountain Lake Park is getting a new restroom building. Winding round on the Mountain Lake Trail, the wood benches on the east side of the lake are gone now. So is the nearby short offshoot trail with its blackberry bushes and the graffitied foundation of a small building. Now this spot is completely chainlink-fenced and bare due to the ongoing extensive renovation of the lake and area around it.
Curving to the west to the trail fork and onto the upper trail here, continuing uphill with the golf course on both sides. Finally out at the Park Trail, but crossing the street to continue left on one of the longer secluded forest trails around here.
Out at Wright Loop (third pic) which short, curvy street has one large home on it (fourth pic). Where the trail meets this paved road, there's a sign saying not to disturb the resident but to continue downhill (to the Fort Scott neighborhood). Nearby Wisser Court is the narrow street to take to the community garden. Fifth pic: up to the garden. Sixth pic: garden flowers.
Down through the playground and continuing east behind the residences, crossed under the highway overpass and onto the Park Trail to the west this time (seventh pic). Then up the stairway (98 or so steps) through the forest to the Cemetery Overlook (next two pics) with several barking dogs following me, the dogs' walker below calling them back.
Out at the overlook's south entrance and up the Bay Area Ridge Trail (10th pic) past the Spire sculpture (last pic: top of the Spire).
Crossed the street at the golf course buildings where a walker's trail leads out of the park at Arguello, so as to avoid walking through the golf course parking lot.
