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.

  • A lot lot lot of steps! Be in shape or ready to make several rest stops along the way. One of the better condition steps in the area  more »
  • Start at the top! It's much easier to go down the thousands (yes) of steps than go up them. The steps wind down through back yards and gardens, and are gorgeous. And then there's the killer view!  more »
  • Just about most places worth seeing in San Francisco have hills and steps. However, it’s good to explore the city on foot and walking/climbing stairs. Great views from Coit Tower.  more »
