This is a 2.7 mile loop that goes up 588 steps and down 480 steps. The Howe street stairs have the greatest number of continuous steps in Seattle and are popular for joggers. The walk also goes past two historical cemeteries, Volunteer Park with the conservatory and Asian Art Museum, and down the new bicycle park. The walk begins at a classic street-end pocket park on Lake Union and the highest point is, of course, the top of the water tower.
