Mount Nebo, the highest peak in Utah's Wasatch Range, lies along a knife edge summit ridge with three peaks along it's length. The southern-most peak (11,877 ft.) is mistaken on many maps as the highest. The true summit is the northern-most peak. It is most commonly accessed by means of a trail which begins along the Nebo Loop Road. It can also be climbed by way of the Andrew's Ridge route, beginning at the trailhead in Nephi's Salt Creek Canyon. The established trails end at the south summit, and ridge scrambling and exposure are required to reach the north summit. An alternate route is the north ridge. Beginning on the Nebo Loop Road, bushwhack to Wolf Pass, then proceed up the ridge to the north summit. Another popular route is the Willow Creek trail, which begins east of Nephi. WARNING: Do NOT attempt the north summit or go past the south summit in bad weather. A FALL ON THE SUMMIT RIDGE CAN BE FATAL. Whiteouts during a storm can completely conceal the route. Lightning is also a major hazard during bad weather. If you are caught above timberline during an electrical storm, descend immediately or seek shelter.
