A £5 charge for walkers was introduced a couple of years ago for non residents, justified by entry to a couple of things. I wasn’t too happy about paying to use a public footpath but occasionally paid up to show visitors round the rock. I went today and you now have to buy a £13 ticket that covers everything. You can’t just walk around the roads and paths anymore.

Not for the faint hearted, the "run" up to the Mediterranean steps was rough terrain with lots of steps up and down but the views are phenomenal.

Excellent views and a great walk, but it is quite difficult - you'll want good shoes, and your hands free for a bit of a clamber.

Don't kid yourself that this is going to be a nice stroll! Walking up is for youngsters not retired people like me ( although I'm fit and go to the gym regularly), walking down is bad enough so beware. The path is irregular with loose stones, rocks as steps in places and wobbly rope hand rails in the most dogey places. If you are determined you want to walk it I suggest that you walk down it rather than up it as the view is the same. The entire route could be described as a big J as you land up walking up hill at either end with the steepest steps up the long climb to O'Haras's battery. If you just want to enjoy the view then just go straight to O'Haras's battery as that is the highest point on the rock and forget about the steps, if you decide to walk it take water and make sure you have good stout footwear on as well as making sure you have a mobile phone on you incase you twist your ankle or have something more serious happen to you. Last word on it is walking up the steps is a macho thing not a sensible thing - you've been warned!

The Med steps is a wonderful experience but not for the faint hearted! We're gym goers and very fit but the first time I did the steps it nearly killed me lol. Found muscles I never knew existed. There's a reason the military use it as as a training exercise so if you're a family looking for a stroll up the rock this is not for you! Be prepared, good footwear, go early morning or the evening, plenty of water. Do not sit and have a picnic or snacks because of course the monkeys will appear out of no where and want your food. It's hot, it's steep and of course no toilet facilities (seen people moaning about that), why would there be?! It's a brilliant thing to do but do it in the right way! And the view from the top is simply stunning.
