At Oakley Way, cross Sumner to sidewalk on left. Rebuilt in 2012, the concrete walk continues below grade as it rises 27 steps along the left side of Sumner. Notice these homes sit below street level. Sets of wooden steps rise to the street. It’s a feature of streets scattered about the Slopes. Look back and take in the view of downtown. Here, the lots start to widen into yards with gardens and fruit trees. Continue up Sumner past Niles St. to Cobden St.
