This well-signed Byway is a winding drive between cities of Payson and Nephi. The road climbs 9,000 feet and crosses the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest providing stunning views of Utah Valley, the surrounding Wasatch, and dramatic wrap-around vistas of 11,928-foot Mt. Nebo, the highest peak in the rugged and beautiful Wasatch Range. Nebo Loop is designated a National Scenic Byway by the Federal Highway Administration, recognizing it as one of the premiere driving roads in America. The Byway has many photo opportunities with beautiful mountain greenery and wildlife viewing. The brilliant fall foliage of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is hard to match anywhere in the nation. September 14-24 is expected to feature the height of this season's fall colors. However, there are still plenty of beautiful colors in October.
