Home > Utah > South Wasatch Mountains
The South Wasatch Mountains begin at the town of Alpine, near Lone Peak, and continue south to the town of Mona, near Mount Nebo. These mountains contain two of the crown jewels of the Wasatch Range: Mount Nebo and Mount Timpanogos. Mount Nebo is the tallest peak at 11,928 feet, while Mount Timpanogos is the largest peak with 7 miles of summit ridge. Both of these mountains also contain two of the most outstanding scenic roads in Utah: the Nebo Loop and the Alpine Loop. The South Wasatch Mountains are not as accessible as the Central Wasatch. There are only a few dirt roads that travel the interior, and these are not plowed in the winter. The terrain of the South Wasatch is avalanche prone, exposed, and sparsely traveled. The mountaineering routes also have the most vertical rise, commonly over 6,000 feet. Other than hiking the two main trails on Mount Timpanogos, you'll rarely see another soul while climbing in the South Wasatch. The most popular terrain lies around the base of Mount Timpanogos, Provo Peak, and Cascade Peak. Mount Timpanogos and Provo Peak are famous for excellent rock climbing, and Cascade Peak's Bridal Veil Falls are famous for world-class ice climbing.
