Filbert Steps, San Francisco

Descending the slope of one of San Francisco's seven hills, Filbert Steps remains one of the most famous stairways in the city, known for its length and scenic vistas. The stairway features 284 wooden steps running down three blocks and through public gardens and past Art Deco buildings. The gardens, home to some noisy parrots, are tended by the residents of the street and feature interesting sculptures. Look for the building with a facade that features a three-story-high relief of the city.

  • Do after the Coit Tower, not to be mistaken with the Greenwich Steps that are just before. Continue lower after the first "Steps". The Filbert Steps are wooden. It's a long way down that it's better to in this sense also it's much easier. There are very beautiful gardens all along and it's relaxing to cross this beautiful place. It is very surprising the markets in this space so green in the San Francisco. All early November, it was still well flowered.

  • Uber to Coit Tower and take the steps down. You get some cool views of the bay, but you also experience this wild experience that's unique to San Francisco.  more »
  • Easy ascend up the stairs with interesting views between the buildings. Be mindful as you're climbing up between people's residences, we had some serious house envy. :-)  more »
