On our Sequoia National Park Trip, Joe and I tried to see as many different types of scenery as possible. We experienced the far-reaching views from Moro Rock, the impressively large waterfall views of Tokopeh Falls, and saw both the forests and the meadows on this short hike. The majority of the trail is flat, so this hike is great for those who want scenic variety but can’t get into some of the harder-to-reach areas of the park. Bonus: not many people on this trail compared to the more popular ones.
In Sequoia National Park, Moro rock serves two purposes. It’s an obvious centerpiece to the park, towering over the Three Rivers valley and visible for miles around in all directions. But despite the imposing size of this massive slab of granite, it’s also an easily reached viewpoint that can be accessed with just a few minutes of hiking from your car, with views that project all the way to the other side of the Sierras. Unless you have a massive fear of heights or its closed for the winter season, Moro rock should be on your hit list for any visit to Sequoia.
