Run the Santa Monica Concrete Stairs
Los Angeles › Santa Monica Concrete Stairs
Added by Lucas Pols
Great workout with an even better view of Santa Monica Canyon.
The concrete Santa Monica Stairs are a great way to get in some intense leg burning cardio. There are around 170 steps that are wider and easier than the Santa Monica wooden staircase.
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 4th street and San Vicente and you'll basically run into them!
- Water (there are no drinking fountains nearby)
- Good running shoes

Super Crowded on the Weekend
I tried on Saturday morning (rookie mistake) to take a nice little run up the stairs. However, it was incredibly crowded and I ended up having wait for space to open up on the stairs. These are great stairs, and an awesome place to work out, but definitely better on the weekdays.

Save one stretch of elevation close to the cove itself, this 8-mile, round-trip hike is a leisuring trek across one of the countries most beautiful, though less famous National Parks - the Channel Is.
