This is one of the greatest viewpoints in Sequoia Park. It's only a 300m (pretty steep stairway) climb to a narrow plateau at the top of 2000m rock. Once arrived you can stay here for hours enjoying the amazing view over the valley. I can highly recommend to first visit the so called 'hanging rock' which is just a kilometer... More

Excellent "walk" up the Rock with lots of stairs, railings, and places to catch your breath! The view from the top is magnificent!

We parked over by the tree tunnel and then did the 1.5 mile hike to Moro rock. We didn't pass on person on our hike, so it was so peaceful. The rock is busy with tourists and the hike is strenuous but worth it! Great 360 views!

This was a great hike up a big rock. Not as hard as I thought it was going to be. Beautiful views from the top. Saw a couple of deer at the base. Definitely recommend.

This is quite a steep climb up narrow steps carved into granite. Lots of people which made it hard to pass on the steps at times. I am not usually bothered by heights, but this was a little scary . Please be careful if you go. It made me nervous with people standing on the edges taking selfies!

I traveled the PCH. This was one of my favorite stops! It's really pretty! I stopped further down the beach before I realized there was more to it. When you get closer to the rock, it's really cool! I'm not sure if you can go out to it or not. I would do it, if it's possible.

Went in early August and hike Moro Rock mid-morning. Rock steps to climb this dome rock structure which provides great views. Don't miss it!

Moro Rock's top is accessed by a narrow rugged series of steps carved into the rock and at some places quit narrow. It is a steep, rather short 350 steps well protected for adults by a sturdy railing. However it could be risky for small children.The view from the top is brief but expansive. There are a few places where... More

For anyone with a fear of heights, this is not a good idea, in fact, 2 of our 4 dropped out and went back down. I will say the view is absolutely amazing, but the way down can be a little daunting! Even for me who doesn't really have a fear of heights, there were a few harrowing parts.

Love climbing all those steps for an amazing view! Parking lot at the bottom is small. No bear storage... just had to keep food out of sight in cars.
