Pittsburgh Has The Steepest Street in The United States
and Maybe The World.
The Steepest Street, Canton Avenue can be found right here in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania’s Beechview neighborhood.
The Pittsburgh region has so many noteworthy features history and one of those is being home to steepest street on record in the United States. Canton Avenue can be found right here in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania’s Beechview neighborhood. The street is 630 foot long with a 21 foot section of road hat has a 37% grade. Our Canton Avenue comes very close to the current Guinness Book World record holder for Steepest street. Ffordd Pen Llech in Wales has a grade of 37.45%. That is very close and I’m wondering if we here in Pittsburgh need to take an updated measurement. We took a drive over to see Canton Avenue to see this mountain of a street first hand and I decided to take a climb on foot strait up to the top and this is what I saw.
