they go up very high. a friend refuses to go up them as 'she feels dizzy'! BUT I have heart problems and arthritis and I managed them o.k. by taking it slowly and having rests. it helps that the steps themselves aren't steep, i.e. they are 'shallow' and set apart, so you are not constantly climbing sharply. you would need to be fit though if you were also managing a bike or pushchair. there is foilage all around so you can't see how far up you are, you needn't look over! unfortunately to enjoy the full walk you do have to get over them-it is well worth it.
