|What a great ascent up Pine Canyon. We descended via one of the steep couloirs off the summit to the east. Great weather compared to the last couple times in the Wellsvilles.|

|This is a pretty steep trail, there was still lots of snow on top giving a nice glissade when I traversed over to the cone and back. Because it's such a narrow range the summit views are fabulous.|

Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2007
|I left Logan at 5 am in my Father-in-Laws Chrysler and was able to SLOWLY and tediously make it up the very rutty dirt road to the trailhead by 6 am. I made my way up to Coldwater Lake (more a pond really) and then up the ridge and up the ridge. Stewart Pass is just a pile of rocks with no sign. I was sad to see that someone hadn't really put up some good signs indicating place and distance. I headed north up to what I guess was the Cone, there was a rubber tube with summit register but no indication where I was exactly. :) 3 hours to the top and 2 hours down.|

|Deep Canyon - mid-1990's - I had an allergic reaction with stinging nettle in this canyon. It's the only thing that seems to bother me. This route is quite long but still fun.|
Deep Canyon - July 31, 2005 - Hiked with my friend who lives in Logan. She wanted to go to the Wellsville Mountains because she sees them everyday but had never been there.
Rattlesnake Trail - October 11, 2006 - Climbed on a very cloudy day. Once we got above 8,000 feet we were in the clouds. It cleared up enough for us to get a nice summit view.
Coldwater Canyon - November 25, 2007 - There was snow on the summit of Box Elder Peak and Wellsville Cone. This trail is in the best condition of all of the ones I have done in the Wellsville Mountains. Great views, steep route, and nice hike along the ridge.
