Mediterranean Steps is a steep, at times arduous, walk and is not for people without a head for heights.
Early mornings are usually preferable, but during the summer months a late afternoon walk will provide the visitor with plenty of much-needed shade. The area is particularly appealing during the spring, when the visitor is greeted by an interesting and very beautiful array of flowers.
Mediterranean Steps takes the walker from Jews’ Gate on the southern end of the Nature Reserve at 180m above sea level, up towards O’Hara’s Battery at 419m, close to the summit of the Rock.
Please note this is a steep climb and is not suitable for those with limited mobility.
