For those of uncertain fitness or acrophobia I suggest giving it a try and turning back when you get uncomfortable. The views as soon as you leave the car park are excellent and just get better the higher you go. The drops on either side...More

The trip to the top is a workout but worthwhile. There are many steps and narrow passages on your way. Take your time and enjoy the view along the trail and you will be rewarded with a fantastic view at the top of Moro Rock....More

The climb to the top is worth the effort. This is a must do activity while at Kings Canyon. The climb to the very top can be a bit intimidating as you are on the edge of the mountain on a very narrow trail. There...More

The 400 steps to the top of Moro rock are worth every step, turn and for some struggle to make it to the best views in the Park. Once you reach the top you get 360 degree views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Valley floor...More

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!

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
