Westcliff Steps

  Crescent Drive, Westcliff     more than a year ago

Situated in one of Joburg’s most affluent old suburbs, the Westcliff steps, dubbed the “stairway to heaven” consist of several flights of stone steps (210 in total) that climb up the steep Westcliff Ridge, popular with joggers and dog walkers alike. When the jacarandas bloom in Spring (October) the steps become even more popular because you can walk under the purple blooms in the surrounding streets.

The entrance to the steps is situated on Crescent Drive. You can also access the stairs by walking up Wicklow Avenue in Parkview and at the intersection with Westcliff Drive, through a pedestrian gateway. Look out for the blue plaques on walls of the surrounding homes, that mark them out as heritage properties. Once you eventually get to the top, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful view of Joburg's trees.
