Description

Added by The Outbound Collective

A low profile, iconic SF spot. 163 beautiful mosaic tiled steps. Expansive views of SF from the top.

The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps also known as the Moraga steps are an impressive community achievement, and an equally killer workout. Take an easy lap up the stairs to check out the amazing art, take in the views from the top, then get down to business. You'll be glad you made the trek over to this neighborhood gem!

Reviews

The tiled steps at 16th Ave are a great stop off and place to get a picture if you're in the area.

Not sure why anyone would want to run on these steps. Ususally people stop to take pictures. There is another set of tiled steps in the city.

I got out of work, picked up a heavy sandwich, and climbed up the 16th Avenues Tiled Steps to the top for a hellva sunset and well-earned meal. The tiles were beautiful though, it's a good thing they're stairs cause I caught myself staring a lot! Also, what Erin said below!

This is a nice stop when playing tourist. Cool to see but there's not much to spend a lot of time there.

My hubby and I got a dinner to go and tricked yo the top of these steps (which are so beautiful). Great spot to have a meal and a view!

Once you get to the top of the stairs, don't stop! To the right, there is another set of staircases that will take you to an amazing view!

If you want an additional challenge there is another set of staircase you can climb for an amazing view on a clear day. The 2nd set of staircase is on the right once you reached the top of the mosaic steps.
