The Morey Peak has no established trails. The entire region is open for skilled explorers to enjoy on foot or on horseback. John Hart, in his book Hiking the Great Basin, describes several access routes to the summit. He also encourages visitors to explore the challenging but beautiful cluster of the 10,000-foot "Lichen Peaks" to the south and east of Morey Peak. Where mountain mahgony grow thick, passage becomes very challenging and difficult.
More than most other wild areas in Nevada, the difficult terrain of Morey Peak demands respect and exceptional backcountry navigation and route finding skills from explorers. Plan ahead and take enough water for the duration of your trip, as springs and water sources are not dependable in the latter half of the summer. John Hart also recommends a side trip into lower South Canyon to see a unique 30-foot high waterfall (best viewed in early summer).
