What to know
A delightful hike to moss-covered Nebo Springs begins behind the visitor center on the Rim Trail. Turn right onto the Rim Trail then down Nebo Steps to the Bench Road Trail. Turn right on the bench and follow until you get to the sign for Nebo Springs. The climb back up Nebo Springs Trail, then right onto the Rim Trail, completes a rectangular circle? Highly recommended for the historical significance and natural beauty, this loop is, however, strenuous. The stone enclosure of Nebo Springs, located directly below the bench, dates back to the 1800äó»s. Children were often sent to the spring with buckets to fetch water for meals.
