[Full stairway listing]


The 20th Street Stairs are located between Sanchez and Noe on 20th Street, just west of Delores Park.  The stairway consists of two staircases, the more dramatic of which is located at the intersection of 20th and Sanchez.  The second stairway is one block east on 20th and leads down to Noe Street.

Located just above Delores Park, the eastern end of the 20th Street Stairs jog through a garden cared for by neighbors and open into a panoramic view of San Francisco to the east.  20th Street continues west for a block before a second staircase descends to Noe Street.  The western steps form terraces for apartments that open directly onto the stairs.

There are some impressive houses on both ends of the stairways and on 20th Street.  If you enjoy San Francisco's urban architecture, then a walk over the 20th Street Stairs is a good afternoon jaunt.
