A great short workout with great views - if you're ambitious, you can climb up all of the stairs in Coit Tower as well!

I've been doing these steps 3x a week for the past few months. I'll climb the step 4-8x in a workout. The views and scenery are really nice and it never gets boring. I've lost 25 lbs since I started doing this workout. Definitely consider taking advantage of the steps! : )

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).

Excellent for a workout if you don't like being stuck in a gym. Very green and pretty quiet.
