One of the hidden gems of the neighborhood, a beloved local named Esther Aagaard Tapebland walked these steps everyday, for 50 years in Silver Lake. Fountain Ave becomes Landa St. Park on Griffith Park Ave and hike your way up the steep driveway. Amazing views of Hollywood, the Hollywood Sign, the Griffith Observatory from here. The steps are shady, so it will be a welcome when the days are hot.

Landa St Stairs (Esther's Steps) Reviews

Secret steps through the neighborhood! You’ll pass some homes on both sides, but the stairs open up to some amazing views of the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory. If you decide to walk the steps at night, and you’re with a dog, make sure to have a flashlight and possibly some pepper spray. There are neighborhood coyotes that have been wandering around so you want to make sure that your little pup is safe!
