“Outstanding panoramic for only 15minute walk up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Definitely don't miss this if ur in the Park. This was definitely a cant miss attraction for us. It's a 10-15 min walk up the stairs to a spectacular view. WARNING: make sure the road to Moro Rock is open.....it closes sometime in November and doesn't re open until spring.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The steps are hard work, but do-able, even if relatively unfit and overweight (like me!). It doesn't take that long.

The pay off when you reach the top is most definitely worth it. So glad I went.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Went to the top and enjoyed every angle. Mountains, valleys, winding roads. It is a wonderland from the top. The steps are steep, but worth the effort.

“Breathtaking Hike Up the Side of Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This hike was one of my favorite. They literally installed stairs and rails up the side of these huge rocks. If you dont like heights, this may not be for you. It was a little strenous and I did see people turn around. Theres a lot of stairs and the railing is a little scary cause theres a lot of open space. But the view from the top is worth it! You can see the Keawah River down below and the dept is close to that of the Grand Canyon.....

“Exceptional Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

350 steps up bring you to the Moro Rock granite dome, and it's worth every one of them. The view is astounding & you really shouldn't miss it. If you don't like heights, don't go as there are places you can look down a very long way. Just one of the highlights on our trip to Sequoia National Park.
