The Sand Ladder has over 200 log steps but you’ll probably get a different staircount each time as some will be totally covered with sand: 7 thru 24.
West a little way to ascend a shorter one (43 steps): 25, 26, 27, 28.
Along the trail atop Battery Chamberlin (pic 29) and through the picnic area with its dunes, trees, and good cooking aromas. Last pic, a Baker Beach “green roof.”
A little way uphill from the westernmost parking area is a bus stop for the crosstown #29.
