Filbert Steps to Telegraph Hill is a 0.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near San Francisco, California that offers scenic views and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for walking, trail running, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
A great short workout with great views - if you're ambitious, you can climb up all of the stairs in Coit Tower as well!
Just a fun experience. I usually go from here to the top of Lombard.
Love this trail for a good early morning workout. The stairs are awesome, just like jumping on the StairMaster for a few min while passing cute homes surrounded by beautiful greenery.
Steep but well worth every step.
This is one of my favorite short urban hikes in SF. You'll wander through the stairwells, gardens, and walkways of some of the most unique homes in San Francisco--and maybe catch a glimpse of the wild parrots while taking in the breathtaking views!
It is true that the vertical climb is not for the faint of heart, however, it is a short climb that's doable in 5-10min or less, depending on how hard you push yourself or how much time you take to enjoy the walk up. I like that the walk here includes both the Filbert and Greenwich steps. Each has its own unique experience. Fog City Diner or RJ's Market are great stops for eats!! (Or Little Italy on the other side of the hill--going past Coit Tower).
It wasn't difficult .. I agree had really good views and very beautiful .. But wasn't difficult .
Excellent for a workout if you don't like being stuck in a gym. Very green and pretty quiet.
Great workout and it beats the step master.
Tons of stairs, prepare for burning legs.
Great cardio workout in the middle of the city! You don't even feel like you're in the city once you are on the trail. Extremely difficult but worth it once you reach the peak and the view.
Amazing didn't even realize it was on this! Did this one last spring break.
Fun hike great views
Good work out!
Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower give a perspective of the area not attainable elsewhere in town. It's a very popular locale, and the hill is strenuous - especially for those of us who prefer unpaved trails. However, this is a must-do in SF!
