Moro Rock is a must see if in the area. Incredible views when the clouds/fog isn't covering the landscape. Traveler Tip: It is a decent incline so just be aware of this if traveling with children, elders, or anyone not in great physical condition. If...More

The path is narrow and fairly steep, but there are steps, so that helps! There are some pretty sheer drops off the edge of the path, but the railings and little walls help you feel safe. Once at the top, the views are incredible!

Moro Rock is a MUST see if it’s the only place you go as the views will stay with you for life!!! It’s a pretty quick 15-20min climb to the top just be careful with kids as

Sequoia National Park’s main draw is the giant Sequoias, but the park has some gorgeous views and vistas to offer as well. One of them is from the top on Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park. The Sierra Nevada Mountains are full of granite domes,...More

Easy to park with a short trail to the steps of the rock. Not a punishing climb but one where you might get puffed out tat times - but it is so worth it. After the climbing of many steps the viewing top with its...More

The climb was steady and became narrow toward the top. The views of the surrounding mountains and pine & Sequoia forests were spectacular. We saw people of all ages making the climb...several young children. It wasn't an easy climb but is doable for most everyone....More

A gorgeous climb. I would imagine the views are lovely but the smog and smoke made it almost impossible to see. Also the swarms of bugs were overwhelming.

The hike to the top of Moro Rock is not for the faint of heart. Approximately 350 steps wind around the rock to the top. There is a safety rail around the top which helps, since you are enthralled with the fabulous views in all...More

The walk and climb is hard. The path is narrow. We did not climb to the top. As it wore us out plus it was a whiteout with thick fog. See nothing. Saw nothing. What a shame.

I'd definitely expect snow during that time, and wouldn't chance climbing up Moro Rock if there's any snow or ice present on the stairway. That said, winter scenes in both Sequoia and King's Canyon are amazing, it's worth... More

I agree with "8 is Enough". It takes about an hour. But you need to drive up a small road from the main highway to get there. That takes maybe 20 minutes, but there are little sights along the way that you may want to stop... More
