Don't miss this view. It is amazing. Just remember you are at a very high altitude and take the stairs slowly. It is worth every step.

We took the little bus transports from the nearby visitor center. It drops you off right at the bottom of the mountain. We took our time but it still took probably 45 minutes to climb. Most of the rock has stairs. There are some spots where you have to duck or crouch a bit to get by. The rock wasn't... More

You can easily miss (or forego) this in your visit if you are short of time so make sure to build a couple hours before dark for your trip to the Moro summit! You are on the top of the world and the view looking on out Sierra Nevada is breathtaking. On one side you see the numerous peaks of... More

This rock is a climb, you could easily get a workout if you went up and down a couple of times. Its is well worth the climb to look down at the beauty on the left, but ugly smog valley on the right. I remember the sky being much more clear when I was younger. You have to keep an... More

A short distance beyond the Giant Forest and Museum is the road and trails to Moro Rock. One can drive to the foot of Moro rock in the off-season, but later in the high season, one may have to park by the museum and hike up due the volume of traffic and visitors. This "exfoliated" granite dome is an excellent... More

No wonder so many people were there. Want something similar but with fewer people? Do Little Baldy Trail.

This is well worth the hike up the stairs for the view and adventure. I had so much fun coming to this natural attraction and met others there to enjoy the day. Don't worry if you are not in tip top shape-- just take your time and keep walking!

For a better experience, skip the parking lot at the Moro Rock steps, and park at the Giant Tree Museum. There is a Moro Rock Trailhead, that's 2 miles to Moro Rock. It is an easy hike through the forest and you get to see plenty of giant trees and wildlife. We did it on a busy day and didn't... More

Oh, I can not tell you how beautiful the view is! You can see the road you drove up to the park. You can see the mountains and the trees. And it's quite easy to climb, I mean there are not that many steps.

It's a pretty steep hike and you'll feel your legs burn, but it's well worth it! The views from the top are amazing! TIP: Once you reach the top, go to the end point of the rail and...climb under or over it and continue on! To your surprise, you'll find more steps leading outward to an even better and uncrowded...
