Ascent Trip Report

It took awhile to find the trailhead for Mount Nebo. I even drove completely around the entire mountain before parking on the side of a busy highway where I was .35 air miles west of the summit. This spot is easy to locate by looking for a wooden cross facing north/south. You will follow a barbed wire fence here and hike just south of the cross. I had to hike over a very overgrown road until I reached a barbed wire fence that I crossed into a pasture. After crossing the pasture I intersected an access road that I followed to the fenced communication tower, even though I could have taken a much more direct path straight up the west slope of Mount Nebo. Once I reached the communication tower I could see the benchmark within the fenced area, but the highest point is still 280 feet to the southeast. I arrived there after covering a total of .65 miles in 18 minutes. I returned to my car in just 14 minutes.
