Mount Moriah Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The highlight of any trip to the Mt. Moriah Wilderness has to be the namesake peak itself. A 10.5-mile hike, followed by a short and easy off-trail scramble, leads to the summit of 12,067-foot Mt. Moriah, Nevada's fifth highest peak, where summiteers are treated to some of the finest views in the region.
Adjacent to Mt. Moriah is The Table, a broad, 7000-acre, mildly sloping plateau at 11,000 feet, having a unique environment of alpine plants and wind-battered bristlecone pines. The open topography of The Table affords excellent views of Mt. Moriah and the surrounding terrain. In between, ponderosa pines, white firs, Douglas firs, limber pines, and subalpine firs form one of the most diverse coniferous forests in the state. Developed campsites are few and far between, but along Hendrys Creek at least, backpackers should find satisfactory sites."
