Strenuous but gorgeous hike. It's a 5.1 mile hike from Andrew's Ridge Trailhead just off Salt Creek Rd. to the South Peak of Mt. Nebo, and steep uphill the whole way.

Great trail, be prepared for some solid snow with some decent exposure in the early season. Snow was firm and was definitely glad I had crampons and an axe when traversing snow fields between the summits.

What a great hike! The grade is steep in some places, especially ascending the summit after the saddle. Plenty of wildflowers all throughout the summer. Don't expect to finish this in the "expected" 5.5 hours. Took our group 7. Great views from the top and from the saddle. BEWARE - NO WATER ALONG THE TRAIL, so pack all the water you will need. I summited with my lab too, so you can take the pooch along if they have well developed pads. Last mile is loose shale, and will cut up the paws if they are rookies to hiking.
