Explore the most popular rock climbing trails in Sequoia National Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The views are unbelievable - worth going up all the way! The stairs do get tiring but I'd call it moderate. Coming back down is very quick.

Beautiful view ... well worth the time greeting up early and watching the sunrise. If you are up for a long day and a journey, get up early and watch the sunrise at Moro Rock. Then proceed to the coast and watch the sunset at Morro Rock.

This is even more beautiful in the winter. You will need a pair of snow shoes and hike from the museum. Well worth the hike in the snow. Gorgeous!!!

Great short hike from the museum to Moro Rock through some Sequoia Trees and great mountain peak views. Only wish is that the railings when you get to Moro Rock were just slightly higher and all the way up.

Intense!! Feels great being at the top of the park. Cant wait to come back and do it on a clear summer night.

So much fun!!! I went when the stairs up to the top were covered in ice. Pretty sketchy - proceed with caution if you don’t have the proper shoe wear. Love love love sequoia ❤️❤️❤️

This trail isn't for anyone who is sensitive to high altitudes. But if you're up for the steep trek, the views are worth it!

If you don't do anything else in sequoia do this. Spectacular and worth every step.

Beautiful views at the end. Huge payoff for the extremely short hike.

This trail is worth the hike because of the amazing views! The driving road up to the trail was closed so you have to walk 20 minutes up a slow incline snowy road to get to the trailhead. Highly recommend this hike, took just over an hour and half to do it all!

Shorter hike with amazing payoff. I don't know that I have ever seen such an amazing 360 degree view. I have been to Moro Rock more times than I can remember. Any time someone comes into town for a visit this is the first place I take them. A hike for all ages. Stairs all the way up and around the rock to the top. The views along the way are also beautiful! Two cons about this hike is that you are taking stairs all the way up, a little less than a half mile, and then it can be very crowded. But TRUST ME! It is so worth it.

I've hiked this route about 3-4 times and love it! My favorite spot to camp is at the biggest Cottonwood lake. Beautiful! Fairly easy getting into the Cottonwood Lakes basin. The trail is nice and very easy to follow. From the lakes to the top of Langley can be a challenge. Definitely prefer Old Army pass as is detailed on this map as the trail tops out in the bottom of the pass. But I've had to go around by Long lake and up New Army pass a couple of times due to snow conditions on Old Army pass. Going that way means you have to go up and over and down from a ridge, which means on your way back down from the peak, you have a substantial uphill once again. But when the Old Army pass trail is snowed over, it's better than nothing. The last bit to the top of Langley is a scramble through the scree and route finding through the boulders. Coming down the scree field can be fun, though. Some of my best backpacking memories are from this trail.

Awesome views!

Scary ?

If you love grand views of mountain ranges and valleys than the summit of Moro Rock trail will not disappoint you. The hike is extremely crowded, and parking is scarce but the fight to get the top of this short 0.4-mile trail will be well worth it once you finally see the view. This trail has some slight rock climbing which helped add a little more character.

Beautiful little look out. The parking lot is right at the base of this thing. Not hard at all. Sunrises up there are stunning!

Definitely a shorter hike, but still worth wild. The view at the end was incredible.

First time hike. It’s really steep but so worth it. There are pit stops so you can regain your breath. It’s pretty view of the mountains. Would love to go again

Great view and intriguing trail!

one of the best views of the different colors over the sky. i was able to see some very distinct shade of blue, navy amd even green. The sunset was purely breathtaking and we just sat there in peace and in awe of nature's beauty

I went on Saturday and I’m a total beginner haha It was super cloudy/foggy and a bit steep for me since just starting out but was super cool to climb. beautiful and a bit spooky due to weather- loved it!

Fun trail up and down. Better when there are less people. It tends to get crowded and the path is narrow. My wife and I went recently and it was misty and cold but still a great, short hike.

This just has to be done in Sequoia National Park. It is a steep climb but so worth it.

Probably one of the easiest trails you can hike. The trail has carved out stairs the whole way up and the view of the Sierra’s is amazing. Plus you can check out the Red Woods along the way up.
