Added by The Outbound Collective

The Hanging Rock Trail is a 0.5 mile hike in Sequoia National Park that offers stunning views of the park and Moro Rock that is easily accessible for all ages and skill levels.

The Hanging Rock Trail offers great views of Morro Rock and is a superb lunch stop. Follow the trail as it turns to the left and then to the right up a ridge toward Hanging Rock. As you head up the slope, you will see two overlooks on the left. Step off the main trail at the first lookout to see a great view of Moro Rock. 

Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife! This trail is accessible from March through November due to snow accumulation at elevation.
