Address: 2348 Cove Ave, Silver Lake, CA
A steep set of workout stairs in Silver Lake, featuring 163 steps to the top, views of the reservoir down below and Hollywood Sign in the distance.
The Mattachine Steps serve as a monument to one of the most influential figures in LA’s history of LGBT advocacy – Harry Hay, who lived in the house adjacent to the stairs when he founded the Mattachine society in 1950; one of the first gay rights organizations established in the United States.

You can also access the stairs from the top – 2331 Cove Ave.
