Moro rock was a really beautiful hike. The hike by itself was not very hard but .5 of a mile straight up. Me and my family loved this hike to wrap up the day ! You will love this hike, I guarantee it ! 👌🏻

A must do! Take your water and your camera! The trip is mostly all steps up, but is completely worth the short hike from the road. We actually stopped at hanging rock and parked there and hiked to Moro Rock. The view was amazing! The view from hanging rock is also worth the very short hike.

Don't miss it! It is not that strenuous to climb the rock, so there is no reason not to go for it! The view is definitely nice, but we enjoyed climbing the stairs more as they are really amazing.

The view is great, but don't go if you have a fear of heights. U made it to the top, but my sister turned back half way up.

We (two families with teenage girls) went to Moro Rock in the Sequoia National Park in February, 2015 and it was breathtaking. The stairs to get to the top of the rock are steep but manageable if you are in shape or take your time... it is very much worth it to make the hike to the top.

You can see 360 degrees from the top of Moro Rock. There are wonderful mountains and forests around, as well as the highway in the park. The top is about 300 steps, 90 meters high from the bus stop. FYI, the road from the Giant Forest Museum is narrow and closed on weekends 9:00—6:00pm, so take a shuttle bus. As... More

First of all, if you are afraid of heights, DON'T GO ! You will be climbing on a big rock overlooking the Sequoia Valley, with sometimes not much space or barriers keeping you from falling. It's a stairway up this big rock. From up there, you get a 360° view of the Sequoia Valley all the way down to Three... More
