Wilson Mesa Trail
Moderate - hiking, biking, photo opp. If you want awesome scenery mixed with solitude (and fabulous colors in the fall), take this trail which is 13 miles one way east from Woods Lake to Sunshine Mesa with a 3,700-foot elevation gain. To access: Drive 14 miles west of Telluride on Hwy. 145. Turn left on Fall Creek Road and follow for 7.75 miles to the trailhead. Park here or continue another .25 miles to Woods Lake and park there. Or access from the top of Sunshine Mesa and the trailhead to Bilk Creek heading west to Woods Lake.
