Rock of Ages Trail to Wilson Peak is a 6.8 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Placerville, Colorado that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This new trail restores legal access to Wilson Peak from the Silver Pick Basin side. It is now the easiest way to climb the peak, with about 9.25 miles round trip, and 3800 vertical feet.
Breathtaking views from the summit. Last climb from False Summit to top was intense.
Wilson Peak is one of my favorite 14ers. Very fun scrambling near the top. This route is a little longer than the original through Silver Pick Basin, but it is still nice to have legal access restored from this side of the peak.
