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.

  • The ascent to the Moro Rock is not easy, although the steps are excavated in the rock and there are railing, so you can upload any. The views are beautiful, much of the Park, although once above must first retrieve the breath. He is not recommended to climb if there is risk of storm or storm, there are posters up all that says that if you start to have lightning or starts to rain, you went down fast. There is a parking just to the feet of the rise, although usually be full, especially in summer. There are also bathrooms in this space.
