About 16th Avenue Tiled Steps in San Francisco, California

This stairway is truly a work of art. It’s located in the Golden Gate Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. These 163 steps climb up from the intersection of Moraga Street and 16th Avenue and end at 15th Avenue. The colors and patterns in the mosaic tiles on the risers of the stairs are amazing. The residents and volunteers that created and maintain the steps also have a website about the steps.

If you want to go higher from the top of the 16th Ave Tiles Steps, watch for cars and go right on 15th a few paces to another stairway which ascends to the upper street level (streets are confusing in this area). Then you should see a final set of steps and landings that leads to the top of Grandview Park where the views are outstanding.

Don’t block any driveways when you park nearby and as always, don’t leave anything of value visible in the car.
