mt. nebo day hike

If you're in town for Independence Day weekend come hike Mt. Nebo from Nebo Basin Trail. This classic wilderness hike to the the highest Wasatch and Utah County peak is quite rewarding. The trail and scenery are beautiful. Estimated trail time is 5-6 hours. 740 ft gain/mile. Knife ridge at top of a steep section adds to the triumph of the summit. Come top out at 11,928 ft. Bring a lunch & a few bucks for gas. We'll be departing at 7:45 sharp from Ikea (see below). RSVP APPRECIATED BUT NOT REQUIRED.
