Welcome to Billy Buck Hill! Make a left on Yard Way and walk to Shamokin St. View uptown, Oakland and Greenfield across the river. The South Side Works, the former LTV Steel site, sits to the bottom right. The Yard Way steps, built in 1944, contain a total of 301 steps, and extend down to Pius St. Cross Shamokin and descend 63 steps to Winter’s Playground at Huron St. and another 52 steps to Baldauf St. From Baldauf descend 186 steps past Roscoe St. and Magdalene St. to Gregory St. Cross Gregory. The last 13 steps of Yard Way were rebuilt in preparation for the first StepTrek in 2000.
