If your visiting Sequoia National park you have to go to Moro Rock. It's quite a trek up the steep steps but worth it once you reach the top. The steps are often narrow and only a small hand rail or rocks to protect you....More

Best hint: save it for early in the morning or late in the afternoon. This is a super crowded area of the park. During the summer season, cars are not allowed to drive to Moro Rock. Visitors must park at the Giant Forest Museum and...More

You don't have to go all the way to the top to get to the great views. We went about 1/3 to 1/2 way up the steps and had a GREAT view on both sides of the rock! We were able to take some great...More

If one is not afraid of heights, this is a good hike to see some beautiful country. This will be your best view of the Western Divide. However as I said, if you have a fear of heights, this is definitely not for you. Moderate...More

Some steep climb, but it was a fun hike. The view on top was fabulous. Well maintained trail, perhaps not good when wet.

This is a huge rock that has stairs all the way to the top. It has around 360 steps and the effort that it took to build these stairs and railing is incredible. Great lookout at the top. Take your camera.

The day we were there our view was above the clouds(as if we were in an airplane) but this made it so unique. I imagine the view is amazing on a clear day too. There are a lot of steps.....but so worth it.

Well worth the climb. Take water! My legs got a great workout and were shaky a while afterwards. It is a strenuous hike up even if you are in decent shape. Enjoy!

Take some water and take your time. There's over 350 to 400 steps till you get to the point. But once you're there the view is so beautiful and spectacular, you'll forget about how tired you are. Forgot to take a picture but you forget...More

I'm wondering, on average, how much time is spent on moro rock? (climb up, take a look, climb down) Anyone that give some clue? I'm figuring out how it could fit in our travel schedule. Thanks,

We spent about 45-60 minutes at Moro Rock. That includes time walking up and down and waiting for people to "clear" to get a nice family photo. It is a beautiful view! Be advised that more time is spent driving up to the... More
