Unless it’s like this! A few days ago we went to the Lyon Street Steps in SF. I hadn’t been in ages, and it hasn’t changed a bit! If you’ve never been there, this is a must see and one of the “hidden” treasures in SF. It’s near the Presidio in the Marina District. Here’s a link in case you’re interested. http://www.hiddensf.com/300d-lyon-street-steps-san-francisco-ca.html
The Lyon Street Steps are a go-to spot for personal trainers, runners, and tourists looking for spectacular views of the Palace of Fine Arts and a short cut from Pacific Heights to Cow Hollow. Starting at Green Street and Lyon, you climb up 124 of the steepest stairs before reaching a break. Don’t forget to turn around and take it all in while you catch your breath. The rest of the climb is a little easier with wider steps taking you past one of the many “Hearts of San Francisco” hearts and senator Dianne Feinstein’s home (just one of the breathtaking mansions you’ll see during your urban hike).
This is a house at the base of the steps….
And a view from the top…..
