It's was a little difficult to find the start of the Steps and a bit of a hike to climb them, but it's worth it! The scenery is beautiful and I really enjoyed the peace when climbing them, rather than being crammed into a full tram!

At the top of Windmill hill is the Nature reserve,I was there at about 0800 so the gate was unmanned,I didn't... More

Absoloutly brilliant views but a hard walk/climb not for anyone who is a bit dodgy on their feet. The views down the coast towards la linea were fab.

A bit of a slog, we stared at the wrong time around midday, at the top, it was a little windy, but 20 steps down it got very hot. A bit slippery in places - be careful! Also a bit disappointing to see a lot of rubbish dropped on the route.

A stunning walk that I have enjoyed on my many trips to Gibraltar but they could use a little repair as may be unsuitable for some people. Still amazing and highly recommended if you have never done it.

We walked from Main St and all the way back and this was a real challenge in 34 degrees heat. Take plenty of water and wear the right shoes as in places it is difficult. The Apes we walked past at times left us alone but made my wife nervous. So plan this walk carefully but it is so rewarding... More

Even though no taxi driver accepted to drive us there, (I dont know why but they all seem to only do tours of the peninsula) we could easily find the starting point of the trail aroung Jew's gate by walking all the way from the port which took us 1,5 hour. Then its quite a climb but the view is... More

This walk was excellent, though it wasn't easy to do during the high sun. Being #1 rated on trip-advisor, I was surprised not to meet anyone along the walk, but that made a nice break from the busy streets! It's possible to get a taxi to the start of the steps, but we walked there from Main Street; that took... More

This is quite a climb and NOT recommended for small children or people with vertigo. The views and scenery are beautiful - take plenty of water and sturdy shoes to walk. Having said that, I managed to complete it wearing flip flops. But it would have been much easier if I would have worn the right shoes :) Don't do... More

My friends and I are 50+. Two of us were not deterred by the difficulty of the hike. We are in reasonably good shape and had three hours to get up, down and back to our tour bus. We took a taxi to the start and the hike did not disappoint. It was a clear day for August. We took... More
