Wouldn’t qualify this as a hike, but you should add it to your San Francisco sight seeing tour! Definitely a plus that it’s free and beautiful!

Step mastering thru multiple stairways throughout San Francisco. Wonderful neighborhood walks with some interesting stops along the way for building viewings. Peaked several parks with different views of the City. Walked down the two tiles steps at the end and turned around to look at the unfolding ceramic images.

The tiled steps are quite beautiful, if you go in the middle of the day. Avoid the crowds

This is a really beautiful stop. The steps and landscaping are very well done. Don’t just climb to the top of the steps; continue on to the top of Grand View Park for sweeping views all the way from Golden Gate Park to Downtown San Francisco.

Great place to overlook the city. Good as a short trip, not too much nature but the views are fantastic.

An urban delight. Tons of tourists all the time, but that’s what we get for being in such a beautiful place.

I wouldn't consider it a trail but it's a nice stair case to take on the way to Grand View Park; which has a 360 degree view of Financial District, the gate, the beach, and the colorful sf houses.

This place is never a let down. Super easy walk with not only those awesome stair works but an amazing view at the top as well, especially when the fog kicks in. Great workout for your hamstrings and quads!

Awesome view of Ocean Beach and Inner Sunset once you get to the top! There are a lot of steps, so be prepared to get that heart rate up! The mosaic steps are a beauty, but more of a photo op than anything. Try not to visit on the weekends, as it would be much too crowded to get decent pictures. Parking in the residential areas may be tough dependent upon when you visit.
