This trail seems a little sketchy because of the height & drop offs. But it is really safe. Totally worth the trip up.

This is one of the best walks In this park or any other park. It is 365 stairs up but the construction of the walkway and the spectacular views make it one walk you will never forget. Today we stepped above the clouds and overlooked the amazing mountains here.

Tremendous views. Neat thinking about how they built all the stairs and paths going to the top. If you have trouble with heights, not the place for you. Lots of sheer edges and places that can be scary.

Spent a day in Sequoia National Park, and this is one of the best and most interesting trails to do when you're pressed for time. The stairs are pretty steep but doable for most, just take a break and enjoy the views if you feel winded. The view from the top is amazing!

The parking area is a short drive up from the Big Trees Museum, but there are LOTS of trees and history to see along the way, including a fallen tree you can drive through, and some great picnic areas near Crescent Meadow, so allow as much time as you can to really enjoy this adventure. The steps up to the... More

To get to the top of the rock you need to climb 350 stairs that are not the easiest to climb. Also do not be afraid of heights. Once on top you can see all of the mountain ranges

Ignore the power station behind you and just take in the sea otters playing in the wild or laying on their backs cracking mussels open. Well worth a visit.

Just before the entrance of Moro Rock, to the right, follow hanging rock. It's a small path that ends but keep going past the large rocks. Be careful as it's not the steadiest, but it's definitely an adventurous find. The view opens up and you get to see the face of Moro Rock and beyond. Great shots from there, as... More
