  • Stairs to Heaven

    Stairs to Heaven

    The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps started as a neighborhood project of creating “a sea to stars themed mosaic flowing up a 163-step stairway.” Now, 14 years later, the wonderfully crafted stairs in the Golden Gate Heights neighborhood serves as a free local landmark for all to see. The members of the community definitely accomplished their mission of beautifying Golden Gate Heights with the luminescent walk up in the center of their community. “Stairs to Heaven” perfectly describes the handmade named tiles that lead up to a breath taking view of San Francisco. Whether you’re hiking the steps for a morning workout or sightseeing with your travel buddies the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps are sure to be a wonderful addition to your itinerary. Park at the bottom of the steps, take in the beauty of the carefully crafted stairs, and snap a photo for all your friends to see. Because trust us, they will wish that they were there!

    The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps are located at Moraga Street, between 15th & 16th Ave., San Francisco, 94122
