I think the Summit Park Trail, named for the former Summit Park Hotel (1889-1918) is one of the two best trails at Mount Nebo State Park (the other one being the Rim Trail). The Summit Park Trail makes a 1.6-mile loop across the west side of the mountain. About one-third of it is shared with the Rim Trail.
Most of the rest of it runs parallel to the Rim Trail, not far from the bench level. (For my gpx-based trail map and elevation profile, see this post.)
One of the sites to see along the trail is Fern Lake. It was built to serve as a water source for the hotel. Like most of the trails at the park, it was originally built during the Depression by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
Last weekend, I had a nice walk on the trail. The temperatures were quite pleasant, reaching up to the low-60’s. These are some of the photos I took on my hike. (Click photo for larger view.)
