This rock is fun to hike up, has amazing views when you get to the top of the whole area. It can be a little stressful of a hike if you are not used to the altitude but if you take it slow it is fine.

It's a bit of a hike, but totally worth it. The views are breathtaking and it's a wonderful place to chill for a while before heading back down.

When in sequoia you can not skip this hike, it's mandatory! The views are just fantastic! We visited in summer, so the hike up was quite crowded, we had to stand to the side a lot to let people coming down past, as it is only room for one at the time many places on the stairs up. But when... More

Main road was closed due the snow so we walk from the museum to Moro rock ,I have a 5 year old and a teenager it took us a good 45 min to get there, lots of deer on the way, the final steps are fun but not that bad and the views rewarded the effort to get up there... More

Totally loved this place! the trek up by itself is an experience and the views from the top are genuinely to die for! the best part about this trek was we ran into a mama bear with 2 tiny cubs who were at the foot of the Moro's Rock!

This is not a very long hike but is a bit strenuous. Very narrow and many steps to reach the destination but completely worth it! This is best hiked at sunset or sunrise. But is beautiful in between as well. Once you reach the summit you have a beautiful panoramic view. Wear conforms me shoes no if's and's or butts... More

Unique construction of the rock is an attraction in itself. The way up the summit is well constructed and child friendly too. Once on top, be ready to get treated with a great panoramic view and a top view of the Sequoia trees.

Nice views from the top! Good spot for sunrise or sunset. Be sure to bring good shoes, I saw people trying to hike in poor shoes.

The view is really amazing up there! The trail that going up to the top was scary and narrow. It's early December so there's some ice on the steps that made it slippery but not too difficult. Make sure to have some shoes that can grip. Also by the time that we got to the top, we were sweating so... More

Climbing all the stairs is absolutely worth it. I hate heights but made it up no problem and enjoyed the views. Loved seeing the curvy road we drove on below us! Definitely a must see stop!
