Wellsville Mountains Ridge Walk Professional Review and Guide
"Any trip report that begins with “rotten road and terrible trail” and any trail with a reputation as “probably the best place in the state to see such birds of prey as the Cooper’s hawk and the red-tailed hawk” (in the words of Utahtrails.com) sounds like a hike any dog would love. Yes, it’s true, the road and “trail” are in despicable condition. But the solitude, views, and open ridge walk warrant including this tough hike, especially for tough dogs. Even in the summer, wear long sleeves and pants to protect your skin from the heavily overgrown plants on parts of the hike, and try to enjoy the Wellsville Mountains in the early hours before the heat. There is no water on the route—bring plenty for your dog."
