Dry Mountain is a very underused trail. You have to drive to Santaquin Meadows and turn west at the road that goes off. From there its a 1/2 mile to the gate/fence area where you can park you car. The trail itself has some growth over it but once you hit the saddles its straight up from there. During the summer there are tons of flowers and butterflies, and is the only mountain that gives you a great view of the Nebo Loop Trail's surroundings. Pretty short for such a high mountain (given the car gets you halfway up)
