Stairway hike up to Capitol Hill

Sketched April 14, 2:31 p.m.
With 293 steps, Blaine Stairway in Capitol Hill is one of the longest outdoor public stairways in the city. It goes from Lakeview Avenue East, just east of I-5, to 10th Avenue East.
I learned about this unique location at publicstairs.com, a website that documents every stairway in the city that has more than 100 steps.
The site is the brainchild of Doug Beyerlein, a local runner who trains for 100-mile ultra-marathons running outdoor stairways up and down. Stairway hiking beats running on a treadmill at the gym and is also a good way to explore the city, he said.
Stay tuned for a sketch of Beyerlein at Seattle’s longest stairway. Can you guess where it is?
