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

Really nice view of the valley looking west. Nice point to stop. Another thing next to pass is South Park historical museum in Fairplay, CO (going westbound)

This high point on the way from Colorado Springs to South Park and Salida or Buena Vista gives you one of the most expansive views of the second range, which includes most of our 14,000 ft mountains. Good rest stop with always open pit toilets, a weather shelter and viewing deck, and a gift shop in summer.

Wonderful view looking out over the valley. Can get some great sunset pics. Some neat short little paths to hike on and a longer path through the valley if you are up for it.

Definitely worth the few minutes to pull off the road to take some photos. Plenty of space to safely pull off the road.

It comes on you quick, after climbing a hill going Eastbound. We needed a bathroom break & fortunately there was... More

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
