Notes: If you travel up Payson Canyon, the Monument parking area is after the summit of the Nebo loop. Once you find the parking area, take the dirt road that exits at the north end.

Waypoint 1
Wolf Pass
 Elevation: 10610  Feature: Saddle
Notes: On the way to the peak, you wrap around the northern end of the Nebo range and head for Wolf Pass. There is a great meadow here where you have great views both east and west. The peak you see above you to the south is a false summit. The true summit is another 1/2 mile across a knife edge (it is a good trail though).
Waypoint 2
Mount Nebo
 Elevation: 11928  AKA: North Mount Nebo
 Feature: Peak
Notes: It is the tallest peak in Utah County at 11,928 ft, although not as popular as the 2nd highest peak, Mount Timpanogos, which is about 200 ft shorter. Mount Nebo is also considered the southern tip of the Wasatch Range


Destination
Middle Mount Nebo
 Elevation: 10804  AKA: North Mount Nebo
 Feature: Peak
Notes: At one time, geoligists claimed the middle peak was the highest peak in Utah County. Then, with new technology, it was discovered the north peak was actually the taller of the two.
