On the way to Box Elder  Sucess!

Came from Deep Canyon and hit the top before continuing on to Box Elder Peak. I was alone at the top for both summits

Wellsville Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked the Wellsville Ridge with my wife and sister. We started on the southern edge at Rattlesnake Gulch, and it was super overgrown and mega steep on the way up. The trail from Box Elder Peak all the way to Mendon is descent, but there are no trails to the unnamed peak, Pleasant View, or Scout Peak. Mendon Peak is a nightmare to ascend or descend on the western side, so I'd highly recommend tacking on some extra mileage and approaching and descending from the south. Super steep and overgrown descent down into Deep Canyon where we dropped the 2nd car. All-in-all—beautiful hike, but due to the neglect of the trail, I doubt I'll ever do it again.

Traverse from Deep Canyon to Box Elder Peak and Back :)  Sucess!

Long day, nice views. Probably wouldn't do the traverse again, but glad to have done it. :)

Up From Rattlesnake, Down from Coldwater West  Sucess!

Bagged the Cone while mapping invasive weeds. I loved the trail section below the cone. Beautiful views from rocky switchbacks. The route down on the west side was pleasant.

Wellsville Cone  Sucess!

6/22/2015 - Went up the Rattlesnake trail and down Deep Canyon. Jeremy J. came along. I was glad to do the full traverse.

7/9/2001 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.

Wellsville  Sucess!

Hiked with Box Elder Peak from Rattlesnake trailhead. We didn't get a view because the summit was enshrouded by clouds at the time.

Wellsville Cone  Sucess!

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.
