Crossing over from Land’s End at the crosswalk near Louis’ Restaurant for Sutro Heights Park: 1, 2
Trailing up: 3
21 steps up and around 35 down the south side of the Sutro Heights viewspot. 4 thru 21
The benches were gone. Looked like they were constructing new ones here and below. Probably completed by now.
Over to the east side of the main part of the park and down a treelimb-lined trail: 22 thru 27
It soon turns into a rougher trail: 28, 29
Then it’s easier going and lined with iceplant and other wildflowers on the way to the Balboa stairway (118 steps): 30 thru 33
The graffiti this hike wasn’t quite as dramatic as last visit, but you can be sure there’ll always be some wherever there's wood or another solid surface.
Down the uneven log steps to Balboa: 34 thru 74
Particularly enjoyed a certain succulent beauty with gorgeous yellow flowers all along this route.
Back up again and to the east up another trail to 48th Ave. near its south dead-end: 75 thru 82
