Between Kirkham and Lawton streets at the golden gate heights, this148-step mosaic tile staircase extends the 16th Avenue. The project was initiated as an incentive to end the messy graffiti on the staircase. Communally funded and volunteer maintained, the steps are another symbol of San Franciscan’s love affair with their city. The largest figure on the steps are a 26-step long salamander, a striking figure. Also attractive are the butterflies and poppies.

  • Judah St & 16th Ave: Street car 10, Bus N-Owl.

  • Nice place to check out that won't take up too much time of your day. Parking is easy to find in this area. Steps seemed to be well maintained. There wasn't much people at this location when I went, but large groups seemed to tour at this spot as part of their itinerary. Be sure to head up the 16th Ave tiled steps that isn't too far from this location.

  • These steps are a beautiful use of public space and especially representative of the San Francisco aesthetic. A garden of native California flora lies alongside the colorfully painted steps. Visit on a cloudless day and you'll be rewarded with a view overlooking the Inner Sunset and Golden Gate Park.

  • Impressive mosaic of flowers up the numerous steps. Take your time to walk up whilst admiring the vibrant colours and beautifully designed flower patterns. For the fit you can always pace up your steps.

  • So beautiful and by far the best of the mosaic steps in the city. Met one of the homeowners who built and helps maintain it and loved hearing his story and seeing his love and dedication.

  • This is another set of mosaic steps in the Sunset neighborhood. These relatively brand new and beautiful steps are good looking with colorful design. Walking up and down the stairs will give you a good workout for the day. Since these steps are less well-known, there are less tourists there. Thus, you can easily have all these steps to yourself.
