Wide trail that can be used for many activities. However, I did run across a few down tress crossing the trail, but was able to navigate over or under them. Would highly recommend the side trail that loops up Mt Nebo.

Trek wise, it was decent. The Nebo trail was wide and cleared out to make for a simple hiking experience. Very green and the sunlight filtering through the tree tops was so pretty across the ferns. A little muddy in some areas but nothing for concern. Now the bugs make for a different story. The mosquitos were SO bad. It didn’t seem to matter how much bug spray we put on, they kept swarming us, which made it a very uncomfortable and frustrating hike. We also went a little further into another trail to see the lake since there wasn’t anything at the end of Nebo Trail. Like the rating says: ok, but nothing to write home about.

Easy trail for hiking or mountain biking. Can do as an out and back or connect with the boundary trail to Swamp Line for a loop. The north section is a two-track until you get to the Nebo Cabin, then the trail narrows. There is a warming shelter near the connection to the South Boundary Trail. Definitely worth the side trip up Mt. Nebo. The south trail is a relatively straight climb, the north loop winds through trees and is steeper.

Very nice trail, would recommend that you take the side track to the top of Mt. Nebo . The kids loved it we stayed on top for 3 hrs while the played! descending from the top there are quite a few old growth trees.
