Plan Your Trip
The Sacramento Pass Campground along US Highway 50 is just to the southwest of the Mount Moriah Wilderness. Great Basin National Park and the community of Baker offer developed camping and lodging opportunities as well. These facilities provide access for day hikes into the Wilderness. Be forewarned, however, that the west side access roads to the Wilderness are steep and rough; high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicles with a low-range transmission are recommended. The trailheads along the east side are accessed by the well-graded and maintained White Pine County Road 41. The driving distances are quite long, however, and for day hiking, the trail distances are also long. (See the Trails Tab on the left). Alternative dispersed vehicle camping is available along the designated dirt roads surrounding the Wilderness and close to the trailheads. All trailheads are in narrow canyons; parking and camping opportunities may be limited. The Mount Moriah Wilderness provides extended backcountry backpacking and horsepacking camping opportunities accessible via the main trail and connector trail system. Creative backpack trip planning, with and without a car shuttle, can yield multi-day trips that allow explorers to experience the full diversity of environments Mount Moriah has to offer.
