Partway down from the Gate nto the forest (2, 3), noticed the old brown wood fence was gone that had been here since prehistoric times.
It stood between the forest and upper Simonds Loop neighborhood homes and I was quite fond of it.
The guardrail is now the only thing separating this section of forest from the road: 4
Stacked in the forest: 5
It wasn’t completely down when I was there but this part on the west side still standing might also be gone by now: 6
Went to get a staircount for “hidden” Gibbon (25) east of the Simonds Loop steps: 7
At the foot, a short curvy distance away, was the foot of the Simonds Loop stairs (62). So back up: 8 thru 13
There’s also a separate walkway with seven steps between upper and lower Simonds Loop homes: 14, 15, 16
To the forest that’s below the road and above Lovers Lane: 17, 18
Heading west: 19
Amatury Loop (Park Trail near the Cemetery Overlook) has 47 upper and 34 lower steps.
You can see the foot of each flight well from the vehicle streets. However, they ascend to between the residences and there are no street signs. So not easy to see the tops from the streets.
Upper: 21 thru 24
Lower: 25, 26, 27
To the Cemetery Overlook: 28 thru 36
