I have a little creek in my back yard. It's slow moving and safe (as safe as a slow moving creek can be.) I'd like to build a little set of stone steps into the creek and am not sure of the best structural/engineering/least impactful way of do it.
So here's the main question:
Should the stairs be pointing up river or down river?
I've attached an image (very rough) of what I'm thinking. i'm not sure if the top version or the bottom would be better all else considered equal.
