Stunning views. Beautiful scenery with historic structures. Not, however, for the faint hearted. Where trainers at the very least or something more sturdy as the footings can be tricky, to say the least.

Starting at jews gate, a third of the way up the rock you can look over and see Spain to tour right and Morocco to your left. as you walk the steps you will see an amazingly diverse ammount of plants and flowers, there are a couple of caves on the way up to investigate, at one point you can...

The Mediterranean Steps are one of the most intense expereiences you can get in hiking. There are many different routes over the Rock. Once you are comfortable with the Med Steps there are many others - some quicker, some easier, some devilishly hard but the Med Steps does not disappoint and is a great workout that really opens up the...

Easier ways to get to The Rock but not as picturesque. A bit of a slog via this route but well worth it for the views & the wild flowers. If you have a reasonable level of fitness, do it!

Don't forget to take water! It's a great hike, superb views and some good stair master workout. Don't recommend if you're not relatively fit, because it gets hot and windy, and pretty steep. There are hand rails or ropes at times, but there are places that losing your balance isn't a good plan. Some guys run it though, so it's... More

I am staying at La Linea De La Conception. Within walking distance I am in Gibraltar. People are friendly, loved the multi ethnicity that lives there.

Only for the reasonably fit. Spectacular views from these steps. I prefer to go up the hill to the very top and start from the top of the med steps going downwards, starting from the bottom and going up the steps to the top is far too tiring for me. take water with you and a camera. comfortable non-slip shoes...

This is a slight variation of getting to the top of the rock, instead of taking the road that winds up to the top you can take a set of steps that are cut into the rock face and that runs around from the south tip of Gibraltar up the east side of the rock to the top. The path... More

Great walk up a footpath...not for the fainthearted! Beautiful and breathtaking views up in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve. Lots of steps but well worth it

You will need a good few hours, its a 10k walk from Casemates and a steep climb at the end of the Steps but a thrill and with fantastic views of Africa on a clear day.
