As always, it depends on your shooting style.

I once did a trip to Iceland, which included a 4 days hike. To save weight, I only took my 10-18 and the 55-250 STM with me for the hike. That was a pretty bad decision.. Often I ended up wanting more reach than 18mm, but needed to do panoramas with the 55mms, which after a while annoyed me quite a bit. And best of all, I was lens swapping nonstop.

My take away was that for my style ~24mm (FF equiv.) is mostly wide enough. Once in a while ultra wide angle gives awesome results, but the normal range is a must for me.

If you plan to stay on aps-c, maybe the 15-85 is a good option for you?
