Run the Culver City Stairs

Los Angeles Culver City Stairs

Added by The Outbound Collective

  • This is a killer cardio workout in a beautiful outdoor setting.
  • 282 uneven stairs that will make your knees shake.
  • The views from the top at sunset are awesome.

The Culver City Stairs are an outdoor staircase designed into the trails leading up to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. This particular staircase is uniquely constructed to blend into the landscape and is comprised of 282 uneven stairs. The stairs vary in height from 3 inches to nearly 2 if you're a little shaky, be sure to take your time. The people working out here are courteous and polite, so don't worry about rushing. There is also a winding trail that you can take to the top. It's also a nice way to add a little variety to your stair workout.

The parking at the bottom of the stairs along Jefferson Blvd. is free, and there's plenty of space. It can get hot, so we advise going in the early morning or evening. Tip: Arrive about an hour prior to sunset and take in a stunning post-workout view.

This is an amazing way to get a little hike and a great outdoor workout in the heart of Culver City. Fantastic views, but often crowded.

Often crowded, these stairs are tough to miss. You can park right off Jefferson Blvd. and take the trip up. I recommend you head there in the morning or midday as sunset is always packed.

Go on a weekly "off-day" to avoid crowds. Great views! :)
