Ascent Trip Report

This is the "easy" way up Mount Moriah, but the last thousand vertical feet are steep enough to be challenging. The views are great along almost the whole hike as it's all on a ridge. The road in was much better than I was expecting- the biggest challenging were a few mud pools in a couple short sections, but those would be fine in drier weather.
