The Moro Rock is amazing, it takes 300 steps, some sweat 😓 and for some putting aside some height nerves, but it was worth it. You can view the snowy mountains, the valley towards Three Rivers, and more.

This dome looms out over the western entrance to the park and provides a great vantage point on the valley to the west and the high sierra to the east. Worth the trip up the classic staircase.

We loved this- phenomenal views all around, the sound of Peregrines floating around, really excellent.

Climbed to the top and was rewarded with a truly amazing view. Witnessed rock climbers repelling off the top which was pretty amazing. Completely recommend it.

Totally doable. 3.5 year old climbed up all the 400 steps. Unfortunately it was completely cloud covered, so zero views for us!

Excellent hike. ~1/2 mile roundtrip - but feels like a bit more because it is basically ~1/4 mile straight up a rock staircase and then back down again. Trail is well maintained and felt with safe handrails and/or rock guard rails. Views from top are...More

You can be adventuresome and climb the over 400 steps to the top as you wind around the granite rock. Great photos can be taken. However, if it is a physical challenge you can walk about 50-75 yards up the paved road to a vantage...More

Fun climb up to the top of Moro Rock, but our particular day was grayed out by clouds. Still enjoyed it.

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
