Worth the climb

If you're not in shape, the climb isn't going to be fun, but once you get to the top, the view is all worth it!

First and foremost-even if you are older, don't believe what you read about this being a difficult climb for older folks. All you need to do is take your time and take some breaks. (there were young children walking all the way up-under supervision and there were older people walking up-under supervision) You will be rewarded. Plus there are railings... More

This rock is unique to the west coast. I have traveled the east and west coasts and this area from central California to upper Oregon has unique features that you will not see on any other coast line. You know that when you see Morro Rock...that there is only one of a kind.

Six of us on our bus tour decided to use our free time to climb Moro Rock. I was the oldest member of our group, but with a few rest breaks made it to the top with no trouble. The views from the top railing are astonishing! There are deliberately cut steps and a safety railing, so it's not like... More

The hike is a bit treacherous when there's snow on the ground but well worth it. actually you are not supposed to go up there when there's snow but we did anyway. The view from above is insane! Hard to describe in words and pictures are nice and all but nothing beats seeing it for yourself.

I loved the view. And the best part of it all was getting to the destination. There are steps and railings so anyone can climb to the top. It was a super easy trail. We had little to zero traffic when going up to the rock. Perhaps because there was thunder rattling before we reached the beginning of the rock... More

Pretty easy hike up some well built stairs. Seems a little scary at times but I'm glad they went through the trouble of making this an easy access location. The view is great.

Great place for some picture taking. Although lots of steps up, it was way worth the walk--you really feel like you're on the edge of the world up there.

Great attraction but not for the timid or with the fear of heights. 400 steps or so to the top but boy is it worth it. The views Oh the views.
