The Central Mtns Nebo unit regulates hunting opportunities for spike elk in Utah and covers 1,473 square miles. Public lands comprise 590 square miles (41%) of the total land covered by this wildlife management unit. The greater region is best serviced by Spanish Fork, Payson, and Mapleton. The elevation of the region ranges from a low of 4,500 feet to a high of 11,800 feet above sea level. Wildfires have burned nearly 10 acres here in the last two years, providing opportunities for new vegetation and attracting a variety of wildlife. There are 3 trailheads that provide public gateways to these forested and wilderness areas: Uinta National Forest, Mount Nebo Wilderness. Additionally, 4 sites are open to the public for access to managed private lands.
