From here, curved round the VA parking lot, past the windsock, to the first picnic area stairway, down about 65 to the short wood footbridge (fifth pic). Up the other side is about 77 steps (sixth and seventh pics). So if you count the down and the up as all one stairway, you get something like 142.
Continued east along the parking lot to the short Battle of the Bulge Trail (13 steps down to a gravelly trail: eighth pic), then 10 more steps (ninth pic) at the foot out to the west edge of the Legion of Honor Museum's parking lot. Just beyond the yellow auto barrier (10th pic) is the stairway down to the El Camino del Mar Trail (about 47 steps). From here, across the wood footbridge, continued west to the upper parking lot overlook close to where I started. Last pic: a view of the second Coastal Trail Overlook as seen from the El Camino del Mar Trail.
Continuing south on the vehicle street (El Camino del Mar) that dead-ends with parking for the overlook, on the west side are three wooden stairways. The first (41, mentioned earlier) and second (about 16 steps) descend from the road to a pedestrian trail. From the trail, near the south end of the park (Point Lobos), 42 more steps lead down from an overlook and benches to the lower parking lot area.
