The great Bisbee 1000 Stair competition is an annual fund raising event in Bisbee. It is also a great way to hike Bisbee, taking in the many of the hills, back roads, and alleys of this eclectic city. The trail affords wonderful views of the area and takes you up close to the personal touches people have done to their property. Maps of the trail are available at the visitor center or use the gps route available here. The trail takes you through a series of nine sets of stairs of roughly a hundred or more stairs. Afterward you can continue on to make your own route as the 1000 stairs is just the start of how many stairs this community has to offer. The stairs were mainly built on old mule paths from the early mining days by the WPA during the Great Depression.
