Amazingly beautiful view for relatively little effort. The hike was not difficult with many steps. Both older adults and small children were able to reach the top. Well worth the climb.

Beautiful views but not for those with fear of heights. Very strenuous hike at mountain altitudes. Take a bottle of water and go slow.

Just got back from a visit to Sequoia Nation Park. It was absolutely beautiful! The hikes were great, the views phenomenal, and the trees enormous. You can read about my experience here: unapologeticallyyou.blog… Feel free to ask any specific questions about my experience with the park. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the easily accessible... More

We weren't able to drive back when we arrived as the road was closed, but we did take a shuttle. When we were leaving the road was opened again. I am writing this first from my husband and son's viewpoint. The climb was not bad, there was no huffing or puffing or excessive amounts of water drinking. A nice climb... More

Be ready to climb 300 stairs carved into the rock. At times the trail is very narrow, but safe. We were able to drive to and park at the Moro Rock parking area as we visited in the evening to watch the sunset.

We didn't read too much about Moro Rock prior to our visit but was certainly glad we went there. It was a nice walk around the rock to ascend to the top but the views were certainly worth the walk. In addition to enjoying the hikes among the large sequoia trees in the national park, the views from Moro Rock... More

The climb to the top was well worth the effort for the views, although we were there at a time where forest fires had caused a haze, which blighted the view ever so slightly. The climb itself was not as bad as we thought, yes there are narrow stages but we managed these with our son who was on crutches.... More

I thought I could not climb the top, but it was easy! There are rails and steps which made it comfortable to climb. Wear hiking footwear and sunblock!

I am so glad we took the time to climb Moro Rock. It was quite a climb which made me a little nervous, because I am afraid of heights, but I made it just fine along with the rest of our party. There are stairs carved right in the rock and because it is narrow sometimes you have to stop... More
