DeanRattlesnake Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2009


Fellow SP member MikerHiker and myself went up in interesting conditions. We had to wait out a thunderstorm for awhile and we were hailed and rained on. Another delay was caused by the need to stop and wring out my socks. No views on the summit thanks to fog and clouds and also noted that the summit register was in tatters. Useless. We did have some nice views open up as we descended. Met three hikers who were on their way up when we were getting close to our car. Mike is a great companion and we enjoyed the day despite the conditions.

Great peak to end May. Saw some boy scouts that were taking the day to traverse the ridge from Box Elder to Wellsville Cone and down the route to the north. I could see my grandparents house that live in Tremonton from the summit - very cool.

xmtbikerSki descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2009
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.

First climbed in 1984 while attending USU, probably did it 3-4 times in the eighties, Lead a Wasatch mountain Club hike doing the ridge Run from Rattlesnake to Deep Canyon the late 90's

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.

mbgriffiColdwater Canyon to the Cone  Sucess!
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.
