“Great workout!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Not only is the Filbert steps a workout but the view at the top is priceless and worth the effort! :) I recommend coming in the early morning or late afternoon were it isn't so hot and less people! Sunrise is perfect up the Filbert Steps!

“Be In Shape!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

You had better have good legs because there are indeed 377 steps to the top and Coit Tower. Some people hiked down rather than up. OK I guess, but if you're going to do it, do it right!

Very scenic.

“Definitely worth the hike”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

As long as you're in shape, this is well worth the hike. I personally enjoy climbing stairs and find this hike much more enjoyable than a stair climber, plus it helps to burn off all the great food at Fisherman's Wharf.

“ALOT OF WALKING!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We walked this & found out that you need to be in very good shape!
The Coit Tower (at the top) was well worth the walk: what a great view!
The tower has a 360* view of the city.

“Well worth the hike”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Don't do this if you aren't in shape. The hike just up filbert street was enough to wear you out but once you get to the top the views are well worth the effort. We did it at night and the city below us was breathtaking.
