Attempted to cycle up this little gem, however like most I didn't make the top, but you have just gotta give it a go!
My husband and I took turns jogging up this - just to say we did - and even as your legs start to ache you don't quit because you want to say you've made it to the top of the world's steepest street. I took the stairs while he took the street and I'm pretty confident the stairs were easier.... More
lovestrove taking international students and visitors up here, we drive up and down and then park so we can all walk it too. Great fun. always great photos taken,,
I've often taken foreign students up the hill .We walk up the hill and have a quiet little sit at the top..there are a couple of benches. Its a free activity and can be an interim stop enroute to the lookout over Dunedin at Signal Hill which gives a fabulous birdseyeview of the landmass.
Amazing place to get crazy photos! Fun to walk up/down but super scary to drive down! It feels as if the car is going to tip tail over head! Do not even think of a bike/skateboard. There have been accidents using these & deaths when some teenagers had some 'fun' with rubbish bins....
So take a few New Zealand Jaffas walk up the steepest street in the world and then roll those jaffas down. Take pictures and say I have been there. We drove (cheats) not much turning room at the top so glad we were the only ones there.
Interesting little street. Apparently this is what happens when the town planners don't take the terrain into consideration when they design a town. Go early in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the tourist buses especially when the cruise ships are in town.
It is one of those things you just have to do to say you've done it. It is a steep walk so be prepared for that. There is a nice view from the top and the walk down does not seem so bad. You can get a certificate at the bottom from the 'souvenir' shop
Walked to Baldwin street this afternoon, and it's worth the struggle up there! Some pretty nice views, and another thing to tick off your bucket list. Loses points as the souvenir shop was closed so unable to get a certificate or souvenirs.
