Amazing & colorful steps. We had fun climbing to top and taking pictures along the way. Worth an hour when the weather is nice!

The steps are so beautiful and different from many of the other art installations found throughout San Francisco! There are multiple scenes contained on the steps. Trying to go when there aren't a ton of other people there would be best, otherwise, it is hard to see the entirety of the steps. Well worth the bus ride to get there!

We came to the Moraga Tiled Steps from Grandview Park. From the top of the steps you can't see the designs. But as you go down the steps and look back up the designs are revealed. The designs are beautifully created and of animals and cool designs. The steps are located at 16th street and Moraga. We bought a Muni... More

This little gem comes at the end of an adventure in public transportation, but is well worth it. It doesn't take long to see and photograph, but is a nice addition to a trip to Golden Gate Park.

This was apparently a neighborhood project. The steps are tiled in a mosaic. It is worth a drive-by but if you are in good shape a climb to the top provides a spectacular view. Warning, if you do not like heights, remember climbing to the top requires coming down.

My local friend took us to this place and we loved the view of SF from the top of the staircases. Good hike up. You can rest, meditate, or just relax up there while enjoying the view. Would love to go back.

This is a very cool, artsy attraction in San Francisco. They are not easy to find, as my son a 7 year resident even had a hard time. The are in a very nice area of the city, but there are troubles with parking on busy days. These steps are beautiful to see in person and I'm glad that I... More

Shhhh! Don't tell anyone! This is one of my favorite spots in San Francisco and I don't want it overrun. Oh, well, too late. Walk up Telegraph Hill, visit Coit Tower, and walk down the Filbert Steps. Pretty houses and gardens along the way, and beautiful views of the Bay.

My husband and I really enjoyed finding the tiled stairs and seeing it in person. It is definitely a MUST SEE!
