A steep, fast climb (300ft elevation gain in .5 mile) with dropping granite rock on each side. At the top, you are rewarded with 360 views of the magnificent mountain ranges and valleys that surround you. This climb is well lined with railings but if you have a fear of heights this might be a challenge! Also, if you're wearing a child on your back/front you will get the ultimate workout. Afterward, we opted to skip the short shuttle back to the Giant Forest Museum, and instead took the 1.5 mile Moro Rock Trail way down, the best decision by far. On the entire trail, we only encountered 2 people and passed giant Sequoia tree after giant Sequoia tree as we hiked.
There are bathrooms at the start of the hike as well as at the shuttle stop before Morro Rock. Running shoes or hiking shoes will suit you best here along with a baby carrier backpack or Bjorn, there are many steps that a stroller or wagon will not make.
