We spent the afternoon in the park and were told only shuttles go up to Moro Rock on the weekends, but after 7, they open it up so you could drive up there yourself. Totally worth it! We didn't know how much we had to climb up to get to the top, but it didn't matter. Seeing the sunset/moonrise was... More

There is a warning at the bottom that it is a steep climb, but we were not prepared for the approx 350 steps up to the top, along with some steep pathways. Jus as we thought we had reached the top, we would turn another corner and see another flight! Well worth the trek though. The views from the top... More

We decided to climb Moro Rock at the last minute, since the free shuttle would take us there. Unfortunately, due to the wildfire smoke we could not see much from the top, but the climb was an experience. Under better circumstances, would definitely recommend climbing the rock.

Nice quick hike up the mountain with hand rails and stairs. Most anyone can make it with a few quick breaks in between. Took us about 20 minutes to get up to the top. Great view. Worth it.

Easy to get to by vehicle and then by your own motive energy. The short hike up the granite face is moderate and has handrails. It may be too much for some with asthma or heart conditions and remember elevation issues. The wildlife can be fun to experience on the climb and when you reach the top- simply amazing. Beautiful...

We enjoyed our hike up Moro Rock! We had seen the rock as we drove through the park during the day and had looked forward to the view from the top. The hike required moderate effort but did not take too long. It required walking upstairs in the rock and across the rock. The path was rather narrow such that... More

Be prepared for a very long walk up 400 stairs and bring lots of water.. Great views when you make it to the top.

Moro Rock is a must visit site. Even if you can't make it to the top you should go partway up. We didn't think it was overly strenuous to get to the top. Take water.

A steep but fairly easy climb, even my mid-sixty parents can make it to the top. And the view is definitely worth the climbing! Always popular but crowded spot.
