Trail Information

At 8.6 miles long, the Moody Point Trail is the longest and one of the most difficult trails in the Sierra Ancha Wilderness. There is some major elevation change on this trail. This trail can also be vague and difficult to follow in some places. West to east (downhill) travel is recommended. Hikers may not be able to cross Cherry Creek when the water is high. You will pass a beaver pond where the trail crosses Cherry Creek. There are interesting prehistoric ruins at points along the trail. Parts of the trail are very precipitous and take care in these places.
