Bun84067Rattlesnake Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2014


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.

punchlineRattlesnake Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 21, 2010


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...

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.

Climbed from Rattlesnake. Done it a couple of times and it always takes way longer than I expect. Ended up descending with my headlamp both times.

We started just west of Mendon and went past Coldwater lake and then up to Stewart Pass. From there we hiked along the ridge to the Wellsville Cone and Box Elder Peak.

MikerHikerWet Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2009


Wow, That's a steep mountain! Great trail though. Dean and I started out at 7:30 am and reached the summit just a little after 11am We did has some December type weather about .7 from the summit. but as long as the thunder stayed away we kept going. No views from on top, too many clouds, we didn't stay long on top since the wind was blowing so hard and it was way cold, Someone needs to replace the register if they get a chance, I wish I would have been carrying a spare. It was toast. Great Hike! Great Company! Thanks Dean
