Did you know that Mt Nebo is the highest peak on the Wasatch Front? At 11,928 feet, it rises above Timpanogos (11,750) and all other peaks in this area.
The hike to the top of Nebo is a rugged day hike and can also be an enjoyable backpacking adventure. Most hikers attack the summit via a 14-mile (round trip) trail that begins on the Nebo Bench Trailhead in Salt Creek Canyon.
Numerous trails provide outstanding hiking opportunities off of the Nebo Loop . Two of the more popular are Summit Trail (6.7 mile) and Loafer Mountain (5.7 mile). Get a good map to identify trails and trailheads.
The 2-mile (round trip) hike to Paul Bunyan's Woodpile is a unique little trek of moderate difficulty.
Mountains in the West Desert also provide excellent hiking opportunities. The desert looks barren at first glance but as you ascend the mountains you'll discover hidden forests of juniper and pine and a wide variety of plant and animal life. These mountains offer starkly beautiful views of the Great Basin and surrounding desert.
