“Very Pleasant Climb and Great Workout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Tucked away near the end of Ord St in the Upper Market area, the Vulcan steps have to be among the longest street stairways in the City. It is quite a workout to climb them but well worth it. Good views abound and the houses and gardens along the stairs are quaint and well-maintained. And you feel so good after having climbed to the top. Saturn steps are about a half a block away, also off Ord. They are much shorter and less interesting.
