Sequoia National Park - Moro Rock

While camping at Sequoia National Park, we decided to check out Moro Rock. From the Lodgepole campground we took the main shuttle to the Giant Forest Museum, where you have to transfer to a smaller shuttle to get to Moro Rock. The road to Moro Rock from the museum is a very narrow 1.5miles, and there is very limited parking there for cars. So make it easy on yourself and take the shuttle. Moro Rock is a granite dome which tops out at an elevation of 6,725ft. The trail to the top is only .25miles but you climb up nearly 400 steps. Most of the trail has railing for safety. On our particular day the trail was packed with what seemed like a constant stream of people. The pay off is an amazing 360 degree view from the top.
