Wilkerson Pass marks the Eastern end of South Park. Eastbound traffic slows from 65m.p.h to 35-40m.p.h. Beautiful aspen leaves to slow down for in Fall. Many visions of hidden deer and elk are in the aspen groves. This is good hunting area with easy access. There is a visitor's center on top. It is open as staffing allows. There are... More

Views of the Sawatch Range and the Collegiate Peaks! Take time to pull over from your drive heading west or east on highway 24 and you will learn something!

I'm an outdoor person, so I love to travel to out of the way places with beautiful sights and plants.

Wilkerson Pass marks one of edges of the vast South Park. You can envision the inland sea that once covered the high plains below. Good interpretive signage and helpful volunteer staff in summer.

This is a fun little place to stop and use the spacious restrooms and hike around the various trails. The gift shop is interesting as well with books, maps and souvenirs. Other than that, there really isn't that much to do here. You'd be hard-pressed to spend more than 30 minutes here.

This pass is an easy drive with great views. If you look west you see the great expanse of South Park. If you look east you can see Pikes Peak. And the heated bathroom is a bonus especially in the winter.

One of the best Mountain Valley Views in Colorado. This is a must stop rest stop at the top of the pass on HWY 24 West...if you're lucky the gift shop may even be open.

We travel over Wilkerson Pass weekly for outings from our home. We NEVER get tired of the view as we ascend and descend from the summit. SPECTACULAR!!! So glad the view is not destroyed by commercialism. Thank goodness the USFS owns the land surrounding this beautiful spot.

Bicycling over Wilkerson Pass is an experience to remember. Great views in several directions going either directions. A surmountable challenge.
