Iron Alley - Clayton Street to Corbett Avenue

  • Neighborhood: Upper Market/Twin Peaks
  • Location: From Clayton Street near Market Street to Corbett Avenue at Iron Alley
  • Height: 65 feet

Very steep wood stairs. Possibly the steepest stairway in the city, climbing about 65 feet over a 127 foot horizontal distance.

The top of the stairs were blocked off by a fence and an occasionally unlocked gate in 2005 due to deterioration of the steps. They remained in place until at least 2011, after the steps had been replaced.
