Run the Coit Tower Stairs

Details

Added by Samantha Drake

The Coit Tower stairs make for a great outdoor workout in San Francisco. There are 2 sets of stairs (Greenwich Street and Filbert Street at Sansome), so don't worry, you won't get bored...just tired!

There are 2 sets of stairs for Coit Tower on Sansome St. The first set is at Greenwich and the second is at Filbert. The Filbert steps are a little deeper per step and are mostly wood and concrete. The Greenwich steps are a little tougher because of the shallower, brick stairs as you get toward the top. Either set is a great workout if you're looking to get your fitness on.

Great workout

This is a great workout however the area is quite busy with tourists. Try to go in the early morning before it gets too busy

Can’t walk/run steps anymore

Only option is to take the elevator :/

Touristy But Worth It

This had been on my bucket list for a while and when I finally went, I definitely wasn't disappointed. However, when I was there it was completely overrun with tourists so it wasn't very practical to run it. Nevertheless, gorgeous walk with amazing views and awesome houses. Would suggest walking anyways so you can more easily take in the sights.

Walk Then Run

Did not run up them, just walked for my first time. Lots of steps, very cool homes and amazing views. Cannot wait to come back and give running up them a try.

Great cardio workout, amazing views.

It seems like San Francisco has an endless number of stair workouts, but the Coit Tower Stairs is one of my favorites. It's a killer workout that provides amazing views at the top. If you're brave, or in really good shape, go for a few repeats. Beats a gym workout any day.
