Mount Moh

Elevation: 6,244 ft
Prominence: 384

This peak is not in the book.

Mount Moh is located south of Lava Hot Springs, Idaho, in the Portneuf Mountain Range, which is capped by Sedgwick Peak.

Mount Moh has along north-south trending summit ridge with an electronics facility in a north and its highest point is found on the south end of the ridge. The road to the electronics facility passes just east and under the summit,

While I would not recommend driving very far to visit this summit, it is an easy summit to bag if you are close by.

Additional access information is found on the Sedgwick Peak page. Leave Lava Hot Springs by turning south onto 4th Avenue West, which quickly turns into S. Dempsey Road. Continue 1.1 miles and turn left just before the cemetery onto the rugged Henderson Road. The road to Mount Moh turns off the road to Sedgwick Peak to the left in roughly 1.2 miles from the Dempsey Creek Road and is passable to high clearance vehicles with off-road rated tires. There is no signage.

Class 1, as the road runs so close to the summit an ascent entails a short walk through junipers and pine.
