Have hiked this a couple of times. One of the greats in the Cache Valley area.
Hiked this with a couple of coworkers. We started up from the Deep Canyon Trailhead, got the peak, and then headed south past Wellsville Cone and Box Elder Peak, and then down Rattlesnake Canyon. I was out of shape, tired, and whiny, but I'll never forget the hike!
Love deep canyon, nice afternoon with a great view.
Great afternoon hike with my wife, beautiful canyon and great view! Can't imagine hiking this canyon without the trail...
Got an early start...definitely a must in summer due to heat issues. 2 1/2 hours to the top via Deep Canyon. Pleasant and breezy on the ridgeline, hot and humid in Deep Canyon.
Hiked via the Wellsville Traverse, one of the nicest hikes out of Cache Valley.
Early Eighties and mis 90's. Did it about 96? on a foggy October day Starting at the Rattlesnake trailhead, doing the Box Elder to Mendon Ridge run, down North Canyon with a WMC group.
March 4 2017. Skinned to just below the summit and then skied down the chute on the East face. I was with John A and Jake L.
March 8 2014 We hiked/skinned up the ridge just to the south of Deep Canyon. We then skied back down. It was a great day. It was much more difficult to summit in the winter. John A. and Randy B. were my companions.
July 27 2010 I loved the Deep Canyon Trail, despite the fact that it was covered with growth in the lower sections. I'd wear pants next time. Excellent views from the top. Hiked over to "Hawkwatch" peak as well.
It was a great day to hike the Wellsvilles. I'm beat though.
Summer mid-1990's - The first time I hiked to Mendon Peak was with my dad about a year after my family moved to Utah. I remember it being a hot and humid day. The trail in Deep Canyon was overgrown and covered with stinging nettle. The mosquitos were terrible. Great memories.
Tons of wildflowers. What a fun ridge! Walked nearly to Scout Peak without hardly breaking a sweat along the ridge. The tough part is just getting up there. I had to hike up a few snow fields, but it wasn't too bad. The fun part was sledding down them on the descent.
