Next, continuing up from around 68 Atwood, is another unnamed concrete stairway that ascends to Sunshine & San Carlos: 98 steps, pix 8, 9, 10.
Passed the sign for the Cooper Lane steps on the way to check out Cable Roadway, the latter noticed but not explored last time. I'd seen the upper part then, however, and was thinking it started here, at the 13 rustic wood steps up to a dirt trail: 11th pic.
The trail leads to a short wood walk (pic 12), then a long concrete stairway: pic 13. Upon reaching the top (pic 14), a vehicle street continues steeply uphill. Returned down the 93 steps for this part of Cable Roadway and turned downhill on Crescent a few yards away at the Crescent/Sausalito Blvd. street sign.
On Crescent is another sign for Cable Roadway with another short flight of wood steps to start downhill. After the wood section the stairs are mostly concrete-slabs-on-dirt without railings: 15th pic.
There are about 196 steps for this shady lower part of it. Near the foot at Central Ave. are some wider stone steps: pic 16 (the stairs to the right lead to someone's home).
The total for all of Cable Roadway's various kinds of steps: 289.
This one's also mentioned in a book I got at the recent SF Library Big Book Sale at Fort Mason called "Hidden Walks in the Bay Area" by Stephen Altschuler (1990). But he starts up from the foot of the wider stone stairs at Central in his walk and doesn't continue on to the upper part, but moves on to the Oak Lane steps (mentioned in a previous post).
Passed the top of the West Ct. stairway (a previous hike). Pic 17: a view from this area. Continued past Southview Park to do the Second Street double stairway that descends from North. These two are concrete with a garden between them. The west stairway has 81 steps and the east 79. Pix 18, 19, 20, 21.
After the stairway twins, I'd now circled back to Josephine & North, at the top of the first of this trek's stairs.
Continued alongside Bulkley and down the first short stairway (14 steps, pic 22) to the pathway just below the street: an excellent idea for pedestrians up here with these winding sidewalkless streets. After the first walkway ended, 11 steps took me back down to the attractive walled Pedestrian Ln. (last pic) enjoyed last time: 25 steps total onto Princess St. and down to the shops.
