Nebo at 11928 feet is the highest, and southernmost peak in the Wasatch Range. It is a mountain of three main peaks. Our hike was to the Highest point or Nebo North. The first three and a half miles of the hike was easy with only about 1400 feet of elevation gain. We hiked through beautiful grassy meadows accentuated by white fur and quaking aspens. The final leg of our hike was the toughest here we gained around 1300 feet in three quarters of a mile scrambling up loose shale and black lime stone. This hike is a steep one but it is definitely worth it the views are spectacular. Nebo is an excellent hike for any one who likes to bag high peaks and get away from the crowds of closer more frequented peaks. There are two ore more routes one can take to the summits of Nebo. From the bench trail you can climb directly to wolf pass then to the north summit or travel further south and up to the south peak. However you choose Nebo will be a hike you will never forget.
