Handrail for long steps

Hello, A question about stair hand rail requirements. My porch is about 34 feet long. THe porch is niminally about 34" high. I would like to place steps along the entire length of the porch. What are the requirements for handrails? Do I just need two (or one) rails 'somewhere' along the 34 foot run?

Is there a walkway or sidewalk leading to the porch? If so I would install a handrail there. If no specific walkway, I would install a handrail at each end.
