Seattle Stairway Walks

If you’ve spent any time in Seattle, you realize that it is a city of many hills and stairways, some of them quite steep and dramatic. There are over 500 stairways in the city, making for enjoyable walks and a great way to exercise and see hidden areas and views in many neighborhoods.

Some ambitious Seattleites have put together lists and maps of Seattle stairways, assembling them into walking tours in various neighborhoods in Seattle, even measuring the distance and number of steps up and down on each tour. If you try out all 30 of their walks, you’ll cover 100 miles, 428 stairways and 27,480 steps!

Another Seattle couple is giving narratives of stairway walks on their new blog, and architecture nerds will enjoy this site about Queen Anne public stairs.
