There are six areas in which I do my walking...
  1. Across the Dam (3.7 Miles Round Trip)
  2. Harbison (.5 to 4.5 miles depending on my route and number of loops)
  3. Riverfront Park (5 miles)
  4. My Neighborhood (6 miles)
  5. Cayce/West Columbia Riverwalk (7 miles)
  6. Saluda Shoals Rec Area (up to 10 miles in paths)
Of these areas, only Riverfront has a stair climb (at the canal bridge near the ranger station). Does anyone know of any other place to walk (and the distance) where there is also an opportunity to do a stair climb at the end of a walk? I would like to find at least a two story elevation change.

Thanks

You could walk laps around the perimeter of Finlay Park. There are quite a few stairs to climb there in the area with the fountain.

Also, you could consider walking around the State House grounds and climbing the stairs there. Or even walk between the Horseshoe and State House grounds.

I know that neither of these are trails and are more urban, but you would certainly have your fair share of stairs.

I run or walk the stairs at the State House. Definitely the best place in town for that.

Where do you park when doing this?

I would imagine the same places everyone visiting downtown parks: either a metered surface spot or a garage.
