Filbert Steps is one of San Francisco's most well known stairways. The long snaking steps climb along the biggest hills of the city providing an incredible view of much of San Francisco. Filbert Street begins on the east side of The Presidio and moves up to Telegraph Hill where the street turns into the Filbert Street Steps, a pedestrian stairway. Along the lines of the steps are homes and shops and the steps make up one of the steepest such structures in the United States. Visitors to the area are within short walks from dozens of world class restaurants, health clubs, and markets.
