We went down rather than up them. A bit of an uphill hike to get to the start. Not for those scared of heights. Quite steep in place. Fortunately there has benn renovation in places to make the steps safer. If you do decide to go up them, good luck, although we did see a few people attempting it.

Went up these on a very windy overcast day. dont think i would like to do this on a hot day as its hard work. Make sure you wear some good walking shoes as the 'path' is very uneven and some of the steps are very high. Its a long way but worth it for the views. Parts can be... More

Not for the unfit. Stunning views and potential nature sightings but this is a rough path with steep sections. There are ropes to help in some areas. If you have visited St Michael's caves walk up to the highest point at the battery and take the path on the left at the entrance. The sign says two hours but it... More

Great hike around the eastern face of the gibraltar rock. Can be hard, especially if it's hot, so don't forget water. The views are well worth it though, with the african continent visible in clear skies.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of Main Street, peaceful and quiet. Great views as you climb up the Rock.

Great views, whats not to like. Hold onto your items though as the apes will try and grab anything. Would recommend sturdy footwear.

This is an arduous walk but overall I would put it at a 7 out of 10 in terms of difficulty. The terrain alternates between steps (some steep and high) and loose sand/ Rock. I am scared of heights but never felt unsafe or worried. There are lots of great stopping places to rest and admire the view. It is... More
