Beginning the walk, I started off on El Camino and Lacob. I followed a footpath but immediately descended down to the Sutro Baths Stairway. Along the way, were a couple of girls who were doing a model shoot in the trees. I was curious to see what they were doing, and I stumbled and almost fell down the stairs. As I came up, I took some pictures just to remember the experience. The Sutro Baths Stairway was about 141 steps. Incredible views of the ocean waves of the Pacifica Ocean. The whole area was named after Sutro. He was the person who developed the Sutro Baths in the 1800's, pools with various temperatures.
After coming back up from the Sutro Baths Stairway, I headed left on the Coastal Trail. Lots of people were walking this trail today, enjoying the clear views and the nice weather. I eventually found the Mile Rock Stairway. It was very long, I believe it was over 300 steps. And it took me down to see lots of rocks along the ocean shore. Heading back up, I headed along the Coastal Trail for some more walking.
I passed the Painted Rock and went up a huge stairway. It was over 100 steps and was so steep that there was a warning side by the entrance. Coming up the stairway, I could see the Golden Gate Bridge looking closer and closer. After reaching the top, I descended down several of more stairways and continued to walk until I got to Dead Mans Point. After that, I walked all the way to Eagles Platform.
On the way back, I followed the sidewalks by the Lincoln Golf Course. What a pleasure it must be for golfers to play golf right next to the ocean and Golden Gate Bridge. I eventually reached The Palace of Legion Honor. I took the stairs and took pictures. This was the first I have ever seen this place. Running a little short on time and energy, I continued west and reached a pathway that took me to the USS Navy Memorial. There were many buildings in this area including the Octagon House. This area used to consist of signal stations that relayed information to the wharfs.
I found a wooden stairway that took me to a trail that led to a skateboard park. This wooden stairway was very pretty. It looked like the garden was very new and the flowers were just born. I can only see it become prettier in the future.
Toward the end of my walk in the parking lot, above the Golf course a lady told me about the solar eclipse. I was glad she did, i thanked her and walked over with the crowd and took some photos myself. What a great way to end the Land Ends Stairway Walk!
