Moro Rock at Kings Canyon
Climbing Moro Rock
The Moro Rock trail is 1/3 mile long in the form of a giant stone staircase, and the view from the top offers unparalleled views of the Central Valley and the Great Western Divide.
Ready for a “hard rock” experience?
Moro Rock is a granite dome located just off the Generals Highway near Giant Forest. On any given day visitors may see rock climbers clinging to Moro Rock’s cracks and knobs. For the rest of us, there’s a 1/3-mile staircase from the parking lot that ascends more than 300 feet to the summit. The reward: spectacular views of the western half of Sequoia National Park and the Great Western Divide.
Keep your binoculars ready and steady. In the background: the sawtooth sentinels of the Great Western Divide. In the foreground: the shy and speedy peregrine falcon, free-wheeling in the surrounding sky it calls home.
