Wilson Mesa Trail
Moderate With Great Photo Opportunities
If you want awesome scenery mixed with solitude (and fabulous colors in the fall), take 13-mile trail (one-way) east from Woods Lake to Sunshine Mesa. You will likely encounter dirt bikes and horses on this trail.
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 or continue another .25 miles to Woods Lake and park there. This trail can also be accessed from the top of Sunshine Mesa and the trailhead to Bilk Creek heading west to Woods Lake.
