Moxham Mountain is located in the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest. Moxham Mountain Trail (2,361 feet) extends 2.3 miles and ascends 1,000 feet from the trailhead to the summit of the mountain. The open summit provides views of the Hudson River Valley, Gore Mountain and the Central Adirondack.

It proceeds to climb to the top of a small ridge and after about 0.5 miles affords views across a valley to another local hill. It then follows the ridge south east and descends into the valley in order to skirt around the south-east end of the local hill just viewed. It crosses the outlet stream of a wetland, contours around the hill, crosses the inlet stream and ascends to the col between that hill and the extended ridge of Moxham Mountain.
