Baldwin Hills stairs
In an industrial area, not too far south of where I live, there's a small park in the Baldwin Hills that has a large, 300+ stair staircase.
I should have gotten a photo of me on the stairs for perspective- these are giant stairs, they are difficult for short people like me to climb. A lot of them probably have a rise almost as high as my knee. That's why you see a trail carved out right beside them... for some folks, the stairs don't help too much in climbing the hill.
Still, I made it up in big giant steps. Here's what it looked like from the top. There's also a switchback road and switchback hiking trail that you can see in the photo below:
