Wilkerson Pass

Don't just drive by this gem of a vista. You can view more than 15 Colorado mountains from this one pass less than an hour outside to the west of Colorado Springs on US highway 24.

Beautiful view across an expansive valley after crossing the Continental Divide. Many travelers stop here for the view. Absolutely breathtaking.

Stopped here at the visitor center and got some information. It's a good place to take photos. Here the mountains meet the plains. The aspen trees were in full color and just gorgeous.

Every yea in the early fallr we drive a 110 mile round trip to see the aspen trees atop Wilkerson Pass. The trees and view are spectacular! The rest area is finally open and the gift shop is well stocked.

You definitely need to stop at this park/rest stop and stretch your legs! They have nice trails and absolutely beautiful views...especially in the fall. The Aspen trees are stunning golden colored and when the wind picks up, those leaves just glisten! You won't be disappointed!

I visited with my 19 year old grandson (teenager?) after a trip through Fairplay ('South Park'), a trip across Horsier Pass and Breckenridge. Wilkerson Pass has a great view of both Park County and Pikes Peak.

We stopped by here on our way to Lake George. The view here is breathtaking, with the plains of South Park and the snow-capped peaks of the surrounding mountains. There is bathroom facilities here, though there's no water supply; that was made up by the hand-sanitizers installed in the bathroom. Definitely worth a visit.

A picture is worth a thousand words so be sure to make a stop and take in the view. The overlook is on Rt 24 heading west out of Teller County CO., heading into Park County. It is breath taking. The rest stop offers an awesome view of the plains of Park County and gives way to a view of... More
