Moro Rock, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
(4.9/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Rising high above the Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks, Moro Rock offers some of the best views in the area. Almost all of the park areas can be seen from the top of this 2,050 m (6,725 ft) tall granite monolith. The rock's vertical sides are nesting grounds of peregrine falcons, as well as rock climbers' heaven. If scaling sheer cliffs isn't your favorite way of getting around, head for the 400 steps that lead to the summit. Even though you'll have railings and rest areas, the stairway is steep, and the hike up can be strenuous. The rest areas provide nice views for those who don't like the heights or who can't make it all the way to the summit. The steps might be inaccessible during bad weather.

  • Lots of clambering up, but that is what made it fun. The views were great once you reached the top. We wanted to go back the next day because it was sunny! 
  • Parking spaces are at least I waited. Rock climb stairs are railings feels a little scary. View from the observation space on top was perfect.

  • This was amazing, but not as easy as others make it out to be. It is 400+ stairs straight up a huge rock, and you are starting at 6700 ft altitude. Also there is just a metal handrails and you need to...  more »
