Filbert Street Steps

Stairway on Telegraph Hill

Off The Beaten Path

Filbert and Montgomery St
San Francisco, CA 94133


These stairs are perhaps the most famous in San Francisco, as they lead up, and up, and up, and just when you think it's over there's one last turn and one last climb, eventually reaching the magnificent Coit Tower. The stairs snake through sculpture gardens and art deco buildings; yet perhaps the most dazzling sight are the cars parked by the stairs and tightly wedged in next to each other at precariously steep angles. Although the stairs may at times seem never to end, the climb is steep but brief, with a magnificent vista of the city to reward you while you catch your breath.
