Ascent Trip Report

Since Ritch Go and Jim Egan found a better route on the way down than what I took, please see their track here.

Getting to the trail head for Moriah was not great. It involves driving 11.3 miles on a rough rocky road. You will need high clearance and 4 wheel drive. The cattle guards are steep at times and should be driven over slowly. There are also several deep potholes and rocks in the road. Expect a 1.5+ hours drive to get to the trail head from White Pine Country Road 37.

Since Google Maps cannot navigate you the entire way to the trailhead, I uploaded a GPX track with driving directions to it. These directions start from US 50 at this junction. We drove on White Pine Country Road 37 to get to Marble Wash Road (NF-469). Then it's a long drive up to the trail head.
