Fun to look at from the main road at the base of the street. A few too many tourists are making life difficult for the residents of the street. The hardy traveller may want to stroll up the street but driving is not recommended.

Situated on the outskirts of time you will find Baldwin Street, which is a steep street, with houses on. Not sure what else to say really, it’s a steep street.

Well, it's a paved hill. Straight up. Apparently in the Guiness Book. You can tell your friends you climbed it. 3 inch high steps are on the side for most of the length may help for the walk back down.

It was fun and quite impressive but if we hadn’t seen the boards, we wouldn’t have guessed this was the steepest street in the world!

One would love to experiment climbing up on this street but you aren't allowed. You are reminded of the "crooked street" in San Francisco.

Worth checking it if you are in the area from a novelty point of view, it is quite an impressive feat of engineering with decent view from the top. It looks steeper from the top than bottom.

Well, from the bottom, it didn't look that steep....wrong! The steepest street is exactly that...steep! It was certainly a challenge, but worth the walk up! There are stairs to the side which made the treck to the top easier. Note....be mindful of the residents and...More
