Six of us on our bus tour decided to use our free time to climb Moro Rock. I was the oldest member of our group, but with a few rest breaks made it to the top with no trouble. The views from the top railing are astonishing! There are deliberately cut steps and a safety railing, so it's not like... More

The hike is a bit treacherous when there's snow on the ground but well worth it. actually you are not supposed to go up there when there's snow but we did anyway. The view from above is insane! Hard to describe in words and pictures are nice and all but nothing beats seeing it for yourself.

I loved the view. And the best part of it all was getting to the destination. There are steps and railings so anyone can climb to the top. It was a super easy trail. We had little to zero traffic when going up to the rock. Perhaps because there was thunder rattling before we reached the beginning of the rock... More

Pretty easy hike up some well built stairs. Seems a little scary at times but I'm glad they went through the trouble of making this an easy access location. The view is great.

Great place for some picture taking. Although lots of steps up, it was way worth the walk--you really feel like you're on the edge of the world up there.

Great attraction but not for the timid or with the fear of heights. 400 steps or so to the top but boy is it worth it. The views Oh the views.

The climb was easy, but scary! Pretty narrow, but you're kept in by the built in bars. The steps were cool looking and even had to crawl through a mini tunnel and sideway rock! Got to the top right about sunset time and I haven't seen anything prettier in my life. Going back down in the dark was a little... More

Unforgettable wide view on meadows, mountains and forest from narrow as a knife granite rock. There not a minute with stable weather condition - wind and clouds, sun and mist change every moments. Attention - there are highly upstairs, not simple and sometimes fearful way up.

The park entry for vehicle is $20.00. A drive of 1 hr to get to this place. A 400+ steps climb up the hill to get spectacular sunset view and 360 degree view of forest and mountains. It takes almost 45 mins to climb up as in certain places its just a slope so have to be careful and certain... More
