High on a Hill: Steepest Street

<<   Take a drive down San Francisco's steepest street.   >>
With so much attention being paid to one of the City's crookedest streets just a couple of blocks away, our steepest street is usually overlooked by tourists and locals too. The wildest ride in San Francisco is on Filbert Street between Hyde and Leavenworth. Hold on to your breakfast and enjoy the trip. (With a gradient of 31.5%, this block is tied with 22nd Street between Church and Vicksburg in Noe Valley for the distinction of being the steepest driveable street in San Francisco.)
