My wife and I hiked up Moro Rock just before sunset and stayed until it was pitch black. The stars that light up the sky are indescribable.

We climbed the 350 steps to the top of Moro Rock, and enjoyed the views from the top, as well as the novelty of the climb.

We'll worth the steps, a relatively easy way up if you take your time. Wonderful panoramic view, can't get much better without hiking for hours usually.

This was our last stop before heading to the airport. The trek up to Moro Rock is a little intense, not everyone in our group could do it (stamina or fear of heights), but those of us who did it were rewarded with a view that will stay with us forever. It was great to have this as our last... More

Great little hike to the top of Moro Rock. It offered some great views of the park. It wasn't too difficult of a hike, but there were lots of steps so be prepared for that! I liked how the trail wove around the rocks to get to the top. I can't imagine how it felt to climb up there without... More

I loved the view from the top of Moro Rock. There were 400 steps and a complete uphill walk but it was worth it. More handrails would have been helpful although there were many. Bring your camera and take Panarama photos.

...and high up. And that's it. Man-made steps up and up and up. You will see the view of the mountains and the top of sequoia trees. And that's it!

I climbed to the top of Moro rock on a 98 degree day and it was amazing!!! -- I have hiked 100 miles through Glacier National Park's high country and I was still terrified (in a good way) to climb to the top of moro rock! It felt like a true accomplishment to get to the top. There are hand... More

Please don't miss Moro Rock! We almost skipped out on this because we had a 4 year old to contend with, and i'm so glad we didn't. The climb wasn't too difficult, and there are plenty of places to stop and catch your breath. Children should be watched carefully, as it is a steep drop off the side. Te view... More
