Mount Nebo North Trail is a 8.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Santaquin, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as hard. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October. Mt. Nebo at 11,929 feet is the highest, and southernmost peak in the Wasatch Range. It is a mountain of three main peaks. The first three and a half miles of the hike are easy with only about 1400 feet of elevation gain. Hike through beautiful grassy meadows accentuated by white fur and quaking aspens. The final leg of the hike is the toughest with 1300 feet gained in three quarters of a mile scrambling up loose shale and black limestone. This hike is a steep one but it is definitely worth it - the views are spectacular. Nebo is an excellent hike for anyone who likes to bag high peaks and get away from the crowds of closer, more frequented peaks.
