Massive Rock

Must see this jutting out of the ocean. Look at the person in the blue coat just to get an idea of this massive rock. I had to stand VERY FAR away to get part of the Rock in my pic

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 keep little ones safe and in line. The top can be wet. There is a resting place halfway... More

Get your legs in shape to climb to the top of this gigantic rock. They have steps and railings through most of the climb. This climb will provide you with beautiful views and many picture taking opportunities. Once at the top of the rock, you have a 360 degree of the surrounding low lands. The Sunset was beautiful! But you... More

Standing down below, you might not believe that you could walk right up to the top of this behemoth of a rock, but, yes, you can! Stairs have been chiseled into the granite and the 360 degree view at the top is well worth the short puff up. Just do it!

This is a super easy hike, beware if you are afraid of heights, a couple of turns may not be good for you! One of my daughters couldn't make it all the way up! The view is amazing and fantastic!

Certainly worth the climb up. It is an effort to get up, due to high altitude. But when you get up there the view is stunning. Tie up little kids, because it is not safe for them to wander around.

It was a thrilling hike up the rock. Was amazed at the builders of it. Not a very long hike but 400 steps. It is worth the cooling climb. What a great view. Went on hanging rock trail to get a better picture of it.

Climbed the 250 steps up Moro Rock. Took my time and it was worth it. Great views from the top and got a lot of good photos.

Moro Rock is a great start to the park after an amazing drive up the Generals Highway. It's very steep with a LONG dropoff but there are guardrails going all the way up. If the air is clear you can see forever...when we visited it was dirty but the view is still great. Be careful in wet conditions it will... More

You can hike to this beautiful site or park nearby, either way, your view once you climb to the top will make the journey well worth it!
