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.

Hidden Garden Steps Reviews & Ratings

  • Stunning & beautiful!!! I absolutely love public art; having a public garbage can, a transformer box, or the support beam of a subway stop painted by an artist just makes everything more beautiful, but these stairs are on another level! The mosaic tile art is so colorful and beautiful - I've attached pictures so you can see for yourself. And the stairs themselves are shallow, so they're easy to walk up without getting winded.

  • Amazing hidden spot! Must see and super mysterious while there is fog. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a small workout and an amazing view of the city. The fog will be there but its okay, really great place to get away from everything.

  • Beautiful steps and surrounding (small) gardens. Sort of a hidden gem in the city. Be ready for a small climb (wear appropriate shoes). Best when not foggy - which can be rare. The park at the top is small but has amazing views

  • It was nice and kept well the first time I was there last year, but it seems to have been neglected lately. The steps themselves are still great. It is just the vegetation around it. Regardless of the current look, it is still a spot to recommend to those that seek a hidden beauty around the city.

  • My photos don't begin to do justice to these beautiful steps and the views we had of Golden Gate Park or the downtown areas. There are a lot of steps and it is a long walk uphill from the bus line, so be prepared to take it easy.
