A series of ascending hills leads to the final push on Moriah. There are several excellent views to the North, West and South on this hike. The series of hills can be 'breathtaking' in several ways!

Hiked 4/6/18. There was 6 inches of fresh snow, shoes would have helped but crampons were fine. Some of the best views having 1,000ft or more of hiking to the summit with constant views. Going to do this again without snow.

Beautiful snowshoeing trail, would have been perfect for a day hike but we we're heading to the Imp shelter, which we almost didn't find since the sign was under the snow. Thanks to our hand held GPS and the GPS in this all trails app we luckily found it before dark! Sunny ascent down the next day, I even finished in a tank top! Lots of bear scat and tracks but no sightings. Can't wait to hike this mountain again without the snow! But next time I might take the Imp trail it looks like it knocks off a mile or two, happy trails!
