Wellsville Mountains


Wellsville Mountains

The Wellsville Mountains are located in northern Utah and are often considered part of the Wasatch Mountains. The mountains separate the Cache Valley from the Wasatch Front. Nearly all of the water collected by the Wellsville Mountains drains into the Bear River.

While only moderately tall, they are particularly narrow. For this reason, it is often claimed they are one of the steepest mountain ranges in North America.

U.S. 89/91 traverses Wellsville Canyon east of Brigham City as a four-lane highway, curving north then northeast and entering the Cache Valley at Wellsville.
