Someone has counted, and numbered, the stairs, and I believe that there are around 300. When we were there, there were two guys running up and down..and up..and down. That is physical fitness, my friends. I remember walking up and down those stairs a few times during college - it was no walk in the park. My clearest memories are ones of panting and the urge to vomit. For someone living close to these stairs, or any of the other stairs, it is a great workout opportunity. Who needs a gym membership when you have an out door stair master, fresh air and creeps like me taking your picture while you try to get a good workout. I was getting in the way of the joggers, so I made this adventure a brief one. My quads thanked me.
Another smoggy day in Hammertown.
You can see the numbering in these pictures.
To me, one of the greatest things about Hamilton, is the great amount of green space! Hamilton has so many forests, fields, parks, walking paths...and even outdoor fitness centers like this one.
