Calhoun Terrace is located just past the intersection of Montgomery and Union Streets on the edge of Telegraph Hill.  A stern warning sign declares:  "STAIRS DEAD END" - indicating perhaps a belief that stairs have to go through from one street to another to be worth visiting. 

Dropping from a tight curve in Union Street, Calhoun Terrace is another stairway carefully tended by the neighbors.  The garden is an urban jungle and the view of the bay is outstanding.  If you don't mind having to reverse course, Calhoun Terrace is a good stairway to visit.
