Sunset Stairway Stroll

Sunset Stairway Stroll Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Sunset features two impressive mosaic stairways that have beauti?ed the area and attracted visitors and press. And of all the parks in the city, aptly named Grand View Park has some of the best panoramic views of the ocean, Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Sutro and Sutro Tower, and downtown San Francisco. Since there are such good views on this hike, do it on a sunny day.

Starting at 16th Avenue and Judah Street, walk uphill one block south to Kirkham Street and climb the Hidden Garden Steps. Inspired by the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps Project (which you’ll see later on this hike), the Hidden Garden Steps were conceived in January 2010 and completed in November 2013. The same artists from the 16th Avenue project created this 148-step mosaic depicting flora and fauna, including flowers, ferns, butterflies, and a salamander that extends up 26 stairs."
