Dipsea Stairs

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Once a year, they serve as the foot-pounding, lung-busting opening stanza to the <a href="http://www.dipsea.org/">Dipsea Race</a>, the oldest trail race in the United States.</p>
<p>For the rest of the year, the famed Dipsea Stairs serve as one of Mill Valley’s most vital arteries for walkers, runners, hikers and sightseers. The Dipsea Stairs - 300 of the 688 total - were restored in late 2011. The Dipsea Race Foundation oversaw the fundraising effort to rebuild the stairs. </p> <p>Each new step is embedded with a bronze plaque for which donors paid $1,200 apiece. For a gallery of the plaques, <a href="http://dipseafoundation.org/galleries/Dipsea%20Steps%20-%20New%20First%20Flight/index.html">click here</a>. One plaque honors the late Marin County Supervisor and Mill Valley resident Charles McGlashan, who died suddenly in March 2011.</p> <p>The Dipsea Race Foundation launched the campaign to restore the stairs in 2007, and hopes to complete the reconstruction of the final flight in 2012.</p>
