started at jews gate and immediately you are confronted with two ways to go ...no markers so we guessed and took the wrong one and ended up on a road. What a shame they can`t be bothered to mark it when needed. Came out near St Michaels gift shop and nobody there knew about how to get on it. Dissappointed.

If you don't like to queue for the Cable Car you can walk up to the Rock on the Mediterranean Steps. It's not an easy walk, but worth the effort. We walked up and down the Med Steps quite a few times with kids, they loved the experience, they had no time to get tired as it was such an... More

The Mediterranean Steps is one of many different walks you can take in the Upper Rock Nature Park in Gibraltar. I had not planned to take this path, and subsequently did not take nearly enough water with me, which was hard going in the heat. It was worth it though at the views were breathtaking and I didn't see another... More

This hike is not for the faint hearted. Locals use the area to enhance their fitness as it is demanding to say the least. It provides breath taking views and great photographic opportunities. During the summer months the walk is recommended during the evening.

We started walking the steps at 9am, with hindsite we should have had a taxi from our hotel to the base and started earlier as we got very hot. We are fairly fit 60 + and had to rest once or twice but completed it in 1.5 hours. Fantastic views on the way but very uneven in places. We walked... More

Unique walk up the southern side of the rock leading up to its highest peak. It can be rather strenuous if you brisk walk or jog, but, even if you decide to take your time to cover the distance, the ultimate prize is to reach the top and be able to see the Strait of Gibraltar, with simultaneous breathtaking views...

We liked the peace and quiet we saw no one on our climb up, admittedly we did start at 9am any later it would have been too hot.

Need to be reasonably fit but well worth the climb for the unbelievable vistas of Morocco, Spain and Gibraltar itself. Wear hiking shoes/boots, use the hand rails and go morning or evening during the summer. Unlike most of Gibraltar it is crowd free.

This isn't an easy walk, well not for everyone! But it is well worth it because the views are out of this world. It is not advisable to go up there in the mid day sun, but early morning or late afternoon when cooler.
