While visiting Sequoia, be sure to take the time to climb Moro Rock. It's not a tough climb, but it is a little long, and the altitude will take it's toll; so just take your time. The view from the top is fantastic and makes the climb worth it.

Thankfully, one of the employees at the Foothills Visitor Center suggested Moro Rock. I was a little leery, as I am 55 and was with my 18 & 25 year old daughters, who i figured I couldn't keep up with. I just took my time as they ran ahead. I made it half way, and that was definitely far enough to see the most amazing views ever. This is so worth it...i think most any age or shape can make it half way. Well worth the walk!!

At the end of the day, nothing is better than a spectacular sunset. There is a parking area not too far from the trailhead, and a ~1\4 mile hike straight up to the top (mostly stairs/inclines carved into the rock). It is worth every step for the view.

Moro Rock, if you even know it exists. Just another amazing wonder of California that 99% have about no idea about. West side of the Sierra's heading out of King's Cyn south side. Yes you do have to as some people put it, "hike" to the top but that's just not accurate. This is a safe walk way with guard rails and cables and no way to have an accident unless you have no common understanding of what stay on the path or fall a long way down and die means.
This place is unique for you can view on a 360 degree the western Sierra's and all the SJValley. In spring time there are wildflowers and the drive that leads you here is like driving through heaven.
Enough said?

The warning sign at the bottom cannot really give you the feel of how far the top is. We were certain the top was near, and we were only half way there.
For those afraid of heights, the workout is more likely to bother you. The path is rock solid and "feels" kind of like a narrow, winding staircase . When you finally get to the top, the view is something you will remember for the rest f your life.
