Description

The trail follows the fence line at the trailhead and climbs steadily for nearly the entire distance, passing through conifer stands and meadows. Much of the trail is on a ridge, but there are some steep and rocky switchbacks. The trail is challenging and rugged at times, offering amazing views of the Mount Nebo Wilderness. The trail leads to North Peak and then drops down into Wolf Pass where a non-maintained trail leads to the summit of Mount Nebo at 11,928 elevation. The climb from Wolf Pass to the summit is a rocky scramble along a narrow ridge. North Peak Trail is the shortest trail to the top of Mount Nebo.

Nebo is not your everyday easy hike. It offers steep elevation grades and very narrow trails. Great hikes for the experienced 9mi — 6h 32m
