Around the 121st step (second pic), a sandy trail straight ahead will take you to the clifftop viewspot with the beach below (pics 3, 4, 5). If you continue all the way down the stairway (left turn: sixth pic), the secluded rocky beach offers large pieces of wood scattered about to sit on and watch the waves (pics 7, 8, 9, 10).
You can also climb to the viewplace and the Labyrinth (a maze of rocks to walk) from another trail that's nearly to the foot of the stairs (pics 11, 12).
Up at the Coastal Trail/Lands End Trail again, a paved trail here will take you up to one of the paved golf course walkways. There were no golfers anywhere near me and I followed this one (pic 13) out to the Legion of Honor parking lot's west end to descend the uppermost stairway (47 steps, 14th pic) to the El Camino del Mar Trail (pics 15, 16).
The whole Lands End area is a delight for the eyes and ears anyway, but especially right now with the scent of wildflowers and tall grasses. Especially on the El Camino del Mar Trail that will take you to the east end of the Upper Parking Lot Overlook.
