Don't miss this!

This is tougher to climb than it looks but it is really worth it. Don't miss but take your time. The view is worth every step.

Spectacular views. The clouds rolled in before we got to the top so we couldn't see much at the peak, but everything leading up to it was still incredible and worth the trip.

Conquer your fear of heights! This is coming from someone who is terrified of heights, has asthma, and is not in the best shape. Trust me, if I can make it to the top, anyone can do it. Although it took me longer than most people, this is definitely a short and doable hike. There are hand rails for most... More

It is over 350 steps to the top of Moro Rock from the parking lot. It is well worth the climb, as the view from the top is drop dead gorgeous! Caution is required as some of the steps are uneven, but they have done an excellent job of making the journey as safe as possible. If you are physically... More

The climb looks daunting, and we didn't make it all the way to the top, but it was worth the climb to see the view.

It's not too far up, just a few hundred steps with plenty of places to stop and rest, if you need it. Getting to the top is worth the hike though, you can see forever.

Moro Rock is spectacular and every other other superlative you can possibly imagine! The 400 some steps, carved into stone by the CCC in the 30s are well spaced and able to be traversed by most folks. I'm 63 with recent foot surgery and I found the accent and decent completely do-able. The stairs are sometime in close confines, so... More

Moro Rock was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Sequoia! The walk up isn't particularly long and can get a bit nerve-wracking at times, but the views at the top are incredible. The first day we went up, it was a little cloudy but we still had some amazing views. The next day the cloud had cleared... More

There is rock climbing on the rock. Or you can take the trail to the top. Its nice if you don't have to stand in line to get up.
