The Steepest Street In The World Is In Pennsylvania— It’ll Make You Sweat

Pittsburgh is famous for its hilly terrain and steep roads, but few come close to paralleling Canton Avenue in Beechview, just southwest of downtown. The road is at an unbelievable 37 degree slope, making it terrifying to drive on in inclement weather… Or maybe just at all times. Oh, and in case that isn’t enough, it’s also paved in cobblestones.

Check out this video to see for yourself what it’s like to drive up Canton Avenue…

Or to bike up it during the Dirty Dozen! The atmosphere is festive, at least, although I can’t say I’ll be rushing to join in on the race myself…

Have you ever driven up this precarious slope? Think you know of a steeper hill?
