The Mediterranean Steps are in shade or partial shade, as the path goes through sections of trees. If your visit is on a hot day, the shade will be appreciated. We highly recommend this hike up the Rock, it is far more engaging than being enclosed in the Cable Car. The photo ops are most impressive. Keep in mind, if... More

This is a reasonably tough hike, but the views are spectacular - the walk down on regular roadway is easy, so have that to look forward to. On a clear day, you can see for miles. Loved it!!!

We hiked across Gib to Jews gate where we started our hike up the Mediterranean Steps. The trail has amazing views and caves. The trail was also being improved. They were adding more sections of rope guard rail along the trail. It is a strenuous hike ( not anything crazy, just a good uphill hike ) but there are a... More

The views are fantastic and this is a much better way to the upper rock than a taxi or the cable car! Currently being repaired in areas with extra fence posts being erected, but still easily navigated.

Not for the faint hearted or unfit or those that can't handle heights. We climbed up, starting from Jewish Gate. The trail is a combination of uneven paths and of course, steps. There are great views en-route and lots of pretty flowers. The pathway is narrow and comprises bedrock or crushed stones. There is a fair bit of work being... More

Great physical challenge and the view and sights along the steps are amazing. I would recommend climbing up opposed to down, especially if your not a great lover of heights like myself.

Large steps, painted well. Quite a toll on your knees if you all the way up the rock though. Not a massive to do in gib, but worth while if on a walk out
