Moro Rock, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Hiking Trail
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Moro Rock and many more Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park itinerary planner.

  • This is a huge rock that has stairs all the way to the top. It has around 360 steps and the effort that it took to build these stairs and railing is incredible. Great lookout at the top. Take your cam...  more »
