SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK: Hiking Moro Rock with kids and young children – The hike up Moro Rock offers stunning views of Sequoia National Park with panoramic vistas of California’s Central Valley and the Western Divide from its top.

Although the trail to the top of Moro Rock is only 1/3 mile, it’s pretty much vertical, climbing 300 feet.
Baby and toddler backpack carriers or infant front pack child carriers work well here, with the exception of a couple of tight passageways you may need to shift slightly to fit through with a large frame backpack carrier.
Your little hiker will likely welcome a ride in your arms or on your shoulders before your visit is through. And there are stretches you may welcome the chance to hold him tight in your arms as well while hiking Moro Rock!
Still, it’s a beautiful place to experience during your visit to Sequoia National Park, and a memory that’s likely to stick with you for many years to come.
Moro Rock is near the Giant Forest Museum, just off the General’s Highway that runs through Sequoia National Park. For more information, head to https://www.visitsequoia.com. And don’t miss my SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK WITH KIDS – CALIFORNIA FAMILY VACATION GUIDE at Family Travel 411.
