Description: Savor a variety of vegetation zones and enjoy splendid views as we explore some of the wild northwestern slopes of the Mountain. We’ll make our way to Moses Rock Ridge for lunch before descending past Moses Rock and then circling back via Long Ridge and Poker Table Flat. Wildflowers should be abundant. Part of our route (Mother’s Trail) is very steep and sturdy footware and trekking poles are strongly recommended. Allow 6.5 hours for this 8 mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 2100 feet. Steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Bring layered clothing, sturdy foot ware, lunch and plenty of water. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Rain cancels.
