Wells Canyon is a connector running between Crow Creek Road and the junction of Georgetown Canyon Road and Diamond Creek Road. The initial climb up Wells Canyon is on a wide, maintained road made of dark chunky slate-like rock. Although not challenging, the surface does make for a bumpy ride, and combined with the uphill grade, you may slip a little. At the top of the climb is a large active phosphate mine. Don't be deterred. There is well-placed signage directing you to stay safely on the public-access road. Just follow the Scout Route's gpx track. A pull-out area has information signage about the history of the mine and what the phosphate is used for. There is no camping available along Wells Canyon.
