|Nice scenic hike. It didn't seem too steep, but the snow sliver on the ridgeline allowed for some steep step kicking. On top there were thousands of lady bugs, which my friend Alan and I had originally mistaken for algea on the rocks! |
After securing a shuttle ride from his girlfriend, Alan and I dropped down the southeast side, doing a nice standing glissade down a few hundred feet of a snow sliver berfore traversing on a pack trail north to the Dry Creek Trail.
This peak was very scenic and I hope to return for some skiing or an earlier spring snow climb!

|I've climbed Box Elder several times. Each time I have managed to catch a dozen mountain goats along the upper ridge. It offers great views of Timp, Lone Peak, Pfeifferhorn, etc.|

|Good hike. Easy trail to Deer Creek/Dry Creek saddle, then the trail sort of fades in the trees going south up Box Elder for about 200 feet. Once through the worst of the trees, the trail re-emerges and is easy to follow to the summit.|

|A beautiful climb. Camped at the North Saddle with a great view of snow-covered Timp and Alpine Ridge.|

|I've spent a lot of time up in this area with my wife and kids and decided to finally hike up to Box Elder peak.|
Besides the rough horse beaten trail to the saddle it was clockwork as usual.
Met a guy "Dave" coming from the White Pine trailhead at the summit.
Decided for a little different decent off. Took a more direct route down through White Creek.

|I believe White Creek joins Deer Creek from the south, on the east side of Box Elder. My topo shows the name of the canyon as White Canyon.|
