Run the Santa Monica Wooden Stairs

Rate this Adventure Los Angeles Santa Monica Wooden Stairs

Added by Lucas Pols

Great views, intense fitness, and like-minded individuals.

The wooden Santa Monica Stairs are a great way to get in some intense leg burning cardio. There are around 120 steps that are steeper then the Santa Monica Concrete Stairs, which can provide a deep burn on the intended muscles!

This place has been a hot spot in the Santa Monica fitness scene for some time so it is also a good place for meeting new, like-minded people but because of this parking can be challenging. Best advice is to go early in the morning or closer to sunset!

Best way to get to the stairs is to enter off of 7th Street and go left on Adelaide.
