ScottBox Elder  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2015


I had made a non-refundable hotel reservation in Logan Utah, for a wedding we were to attend, but the wedding changed dates. We decided to go anyway and do some peak bagging. Shaylee, Kimberly, and I set off to climb Wellsville Cone and Box Elder Peak from the Coldwater Trailhead. It was a more rugged trip than expected because the trail is steep, eroded, and brushy. It took a while to get to Stewart Pass.

Once at Stewart Pass, the trail was a bit better. Kim and Shaylee stopped at the summit of Wellsville Cone and returned to Stewart Pass, while I went on alone to climb Box Elder. I met them both at Stewart Pass and we descended down to the trailhead.

It was a more rugged trip than expected! After climbing the peaks we went to Chuck-A-Rama and saw the Everest movie to celebrate.

Definitely should have worn pants on this one! Steep, great views, and lots of dense weeds and vegetation.

had a good hike with mtybumpo. Brushy trail overall. A little fresh snow up high and generally inclement weather for May. Once the clouds lifted, great views as we headed down.

Climbed on a day with a terrible forecast but we were able to make the summit. It was pouring rain down low and then a blizzard at the summit. On our way down the clouds parted and treated us to a spectacular view.

I'll agree with other hikers in saying that this is a steep hike. There's little chance in getting lost due to a trail that's easy to follow, and good directions here, but a lot of the trail is pretty overgrown with hardy brush that would scratch you up if you're not wearing pants.
Great views along the way. The leaves are changing. Saw a few people on the trail. Up and back in about five hours. No rattlesnakes. ;)

Via Rattlesnake Trail. The trail was easy to follow, but would benefit greatly from a machete.

Great colors in the fall, nice direct trail. Was surprised to see people take their horses to the top... Me and my awesome wife, great view!

Climbed this peak or perhaps Wellsville Cone in the spring of 1995 with my girlfriend. Had a delicious picnic lunch and a fun day on top.

This was my 5th trip to the crest of the Wellsvilles, a beautiful place to take it all in. I did it solo and slept on the crest of the Wellsville Cone, talk about a room with a view.

Looked at the weather report for the next week and decided better get out for one more day in the sun! Trail was in good shape although I agree with previous post about wearing shorts! Lots of growth over the trail especially in the steeper sections before the long traverse over to the summit. Headed over to Wellsville Cone and then back down Rattlesnake Trail. Saw one other individual. Great views and fall colors.

Went up the Rattlesnake Trail and summited Box Elder, then continued on to the Wellsville Cone and back again. The rattlesnake trail is a bit rough in some spots and completely overgrown in others. Break out the bushwhacking skills...

Baaa. Goat from South Carolina here, representing the Webb family, the Southern people, the CSA, and Univ. of SC Law School. I got to the top, views of such great distance. It ain't normal. Baaa.

D-boHot day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2010


There's only shade in the lower part of the canyon. Some sections have loose rocks so be careful going down. No rattlesnakes today! Wonderful views on top, and for most of the way up. I definitely earned the Fat Boy ice cream sandwich I ate when I was done.
