To celebrate some major milestones, we decided to take a trip out west. We visited the Sequoia National Forest and to climb Moro Rock. You can see it while driving up the winding road. It's not a bad climb. There are hand rails and areas...More

This is a fun climb for adventurers. Once at the top, the view can't be beat. It can make you feel a little uneasy, so use all the railings. Be patient with other climbers and pay attention to little kids.

Next to grove of giant sequoias after 350 steps you can see far away the greater area of the park. From snow caps to valley below. Not too step and really worth the walk.

We took a trail from the Giant Forest Museum to the Moro Rock. The Moro Rock is not for the faint hearted. Many steps but beautiful view!

One of those places you need to visit as pictures do not really do it justice. Truly a sight to behold.

The climb up Moro Rock is an exciting way to see the mountains and forests of the park. The trail has 400 steps with handrails and leads to a very scary overlook. It is breathtaking. This climb is a must do if you are physically...More

We hiked up Moro Rock in early October, just as a rainstorm was beginning. By the time we got back down, it was raining hard enough that hikers were wisely deciding not to ascend. The hike wasn't very difficult, and afforded great views of surrounding...More

Hi! The climb is steep and narrow... I wouldn’t take my kids, not safe as there are parts on the way up that has only stone barriers.
