Wood Pathways behind our House

We are continuing the path from the front of the house down the stairs along the south side with a wood platform pathway along the rear of the house joining up with another stairway on the north side of the house. We built 2' x 8' wood platforms, some with one or two steps, and joined together to form the path. Since the terrain is sloped, each platform requires some excavation to level it. And decisions on where to add steps up or down. Then place the 100-pound platforms, check the levelness, remove, add or remove earth, try again. The pictures show the work-in-progress from a rough layout while we were evaluation location to platforms in place. Three-quarters done at this writing but should be completed by the end of July.
