Comments
Comments: Decided to hike this one after getting a later start than expected and could find parking for our planned hike. I don’t usually think this about a hike but Moriah is probably a one and done for me. Trail starts off at a gentle grade along Stoney Brook. About 2.5 Miles. Then the moss covered rocks slow you down for a good mile, every time you think they are done there they are again. Carter-Moriah has some spectacular ledgey views. Be careful to pay attention to cairns/blazes and don’t be fooled the multiple false summits. After hitting the peak we turned right around and started the long way down, choosing to eat lunch on one of the open ledges along C-M Trail. The walk back just never seemed to end. Sorry Moriah.
