Description:

Savor a variety of vegetation zones and enjoy splendid views as we explore some of the wild northwestern slopes of the Mountain. We will make our way to Moses Rock Ridge for lunch before descending past Moses Rock itself and then circling back via Long Ridge and Poker Table Flat. Allow 6.5 hours for this 8-mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 2100 feet. This hike will have a steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Bring layered clothing, hiking shoes, lunch and water. Any rain cancels.
