Church Route

The Church Route on the South Side Slopes is a walking tour that goes up unique stairways, over beautiful views of the city, and by eccentric hillside architecture and historic churches. For 10 years this route was a part of StepTrek but we decided to retire it and post it here instead!

A. About an hour.

Q. How many steps?
A. 379 steps up, 441 steps down.

    When are your Step Trek tours? I may have a group of 5-10 people who are interested in doing one of these tours.

      Thanks for your interest in Step Trek. We do an annual event called Step Trek which is the first Saturday in October.
