Mount Moriah Wilderness Area
The Mount Moriah Wilderness area, located in the eastern portion of White Pine County, is made up of a complex array of canyons, jumbled peaks, and drainages, dotted with juniper, pinyon pine, and mountain mahogany. The highest point, Thunder Mountain, 9,331 feet, is located on along ridge that crosses the wilderness area’s center. This high ridge supports douglas fir, white fir, bristlecone pine and limber pine. The canyon cliffs are pocketed with shelter caves, expansive ledges and huge natural amphitheaters, and rock arches. These cliffs are excellent locations to spot Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep and a great variety of raptor species.
