We walked a trail to get there and then climbed up with a shuttle bus full of people. However, the views at the top were totally worth it!

Be prepared to climb this mountain of stone. It is a challenging climb up of 350 steps made more rugged with the thin air. The view is worth the effort. Travel light and bring water.

Like many other places in the park you can drive up to this place was incredibly busy. If you go be observant of the weather!! You climb a series of stairs to get to the top that are skinny and often yield traffic jams. TAKE...More

An attraction to put toward the top of potential activities while in Sequoia. I recommend heading out early to get here before crowds pick up. You’ll walk up a lot of stairs to get to the top of this rock. The stairs are somewhat narrow...More

On weekends be prepared for the crowds and lengthy wait times for the shuttle bus that takes you to Moro Rock, Tunnel Log, and Crescent Meadow. Moro Rock is about 400 steps up to a lookout of the Great Western Divide. We’re glad we did...More

I agree with Brian D. Just take your time, especially since the elevation is high. There are some handrails along the path as well. Enjoy!
