This is a "must do" when visiting Sequoia National Park. Climbing up the nearly 400 stairs built into the granite requires some effort, but with handrails and places you can safely rest on the way, just about anyone that is ambulatory can make it up. There's no time limit, so catch your breath and continue on for what truly is... More

It's not easy to climb to the top, but it really worthy when you see the view of sunset. The view is amazing and spectacular

The hike up the 350 plus steps to the top of Moro Rock is not an easy climb, but it was quite possible to make it as a slow walk with short breaks. The view from the top was incredible!! A park ranger was there at the time and gave a very interesting ten minute talk about the geology of... More

nice climb and view, can be a bit difficult due to altitude but you can stop 1/2 way and get a nice view. paths are a bit narrow and steep

Moro Rock has 400+ steps to the top, that sounds like a lot, but between the views going up and twists and turns during the climb it is fun and your done before you know it.

A photographers paradise for Sunset view as you will find many photographers taking the view of the Picturesque Sunset. Its worth a climb though a little difficult one.

Even if you have a fear of heights or stair climbing, as I have, I recommend that you don't skip this part of the park. The stairs and grooved ramps are frequently interrupted with landings. You can stop, stand against the rock and enjoy the view while pacing yourself. If you find you've gone as high as you wish to,... More

The climb for 2/3's of the way is fine. As you get near the top it becomes a little scary as the passageway becomes narrower and people are coming and going both ways. About quarter of the way before the top there is a nice resting area with rock benches and a great view. If you feel like you can't... More

Morro Rock sits toward the north end of Morro Bay. Morro Bay is a nice little town with plenty of tourist shops and some good seafood. There are active fishing boats along the wharf area. There are bathrooms and you can watch surfing from the edge of the parking lot. Also close to a long beach area to the north... More
