“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Amazingly beautiful view for relatively little effort. The hike was not difficult with many steps. Both older adults and small children were able to reach the top. Well worth the climb.

“Very strenuous 1/4 mile hike up the rock but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Beautiful views but not for those with fear of heights. Very strenuous hike at mountain altitudes. Take a bottle of water and go slow.

“Not at bad climb, Impressive views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We weren't able to drive back when we arrived as the road was closed, but we did take a shuttle. When we were leaving the road was opened again.
I am writing this first from my husband and son's viewpoint. The climb was not bad, there was no huffing or puffing or excessive amounts of water drinking. A nice climb with steps and rails (in some spots). It was a circular type of hike around this rock. At the top the two of them went to the end of the rock. They loved it! Loved the views, loved the whole experience.
From my viewpoint. I agree with the climb for those who aren't scared of heights. For those of you that are...hey...I did it...but stayed on the inside the whole way as much as possible. I was glad to be back on the ground afterwards though.

“Beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Be ready to climb 300 stairs carved into the rock. At times the trail is very narrow, but safe. We were able to drive to and park at the Moro Rock parking area as we visited in the evening to watch the sunset.

“One of the best views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

We didn't read too much about Moro Rock prior to our visit but was certainly glad we went there. It was a nice walk around the rock to ascend to the top but the views were certainly worth the walk. In addition to enjoying the hikes among the large sequoia trees in the national park, the views from Moro Rock are spectacular!
