Mount Nebo – the Triple Crown of the Wasatch

Looking back towards Wolf Pass and North Peak; Mt Loafer in the distance. 

Did you know that Mount Nebo is the highest peak in Utah County -- even taller than Mount Timpanogos? This his all-day hike starts with switchbacks through forests and meadows before reaching a rocky narrow ridgeline that leads to the summit. It is an 8.4-mile hike that has pretty strenuous conditions.

Getting there: From Payson, take the Nebo Scenic Loop Road into Payson Canyon until you see the sign for Nebo Bench Trail. It’s about 24 miles from the mouth of the canyon.
