After ascending the Filbert steps to get to Coit tower I had planned on going back via the same route, however I stumbled on the Greenwich steps almost entirely by accident. They are a nice little oasis in the middle of bustling SF, and although...More

The Greenwich Street steps may start at the top of Greenwich Street and go to the base of Coit Tower, but there are other steps from the bottom, close to Embarcadero, up to Grant Street. So you can climb an awful lot of stairs from...More

This was a great way to get to the Coit Tower, with interesting gardens along the way and great views, well worth the exercise.

A good stair climb requires lots of steps -- with visual interest along the way. Absent the visual interest, you might as well climb the stairs in your own building. This has it all -- plus some wild parrots that occasionally swarm, with Coit Tower...More

You can grab a superb photo for the family album from just standing in the middle of the street. The incline is made easier by ascending the small steps on each pathway.

We were visiting the Coit tower and if you go over to the side that faces the piers you can find some stairs that will lead you to the Greenwich steps. It was a super cool walk! Like walking through a very good smelling tropical...More

Had to see which one I liked better, so I went down the Greenwich Steps after going up the Filbert Steps. There's a neat sculpture of Columbus at the top, then lots of vegetation, landscaping, and, of course, a boatload of steps. I think this...More

We actually went up Filbert Steps and down Greenwich Steps. Great excercise to get to Coit Tower. Beautiful gardens and cn get great photos of the bay, Treasure Island and Bay Bridge. Be prepared for expensive meter parking $3.00 an hour, meters do take cards

Nearby
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
