Scenic

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

The 16th Avenue Tiled 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!

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 stares cause I caught myself staring a lot! Also, what Erin said below!

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.
