The parking lot on rt 16 is easy to find, immediately cross a bridge and you're in the Woods. The first two miles follow Stony Brook, then the mile and a half before reaching the A.T. Is where the work is.. a right on the A.T. Leads to the Imp shelter .5 m away.. A left on the A.T. Leads to Moriah Summit, the 1.5m is a scramble from vista to vista over slab and through scrub. The summit itself is a flat top boulder no more than twelve feet across. The false summit just below has an acre of slab with the kids view rich people pay a lot of money for, good spot for lunch!! I was surprised at how similar this hike is as to Shelburne Moriah, its neighbor, both hikes were ten to eleven miles, both had 3000 ft gain from the lot, and both took about seven hours...
