Southwest of Telluride lie three 14ers (Wilson Peak, Mount Wilson and El Diente Peak) and a handful of 13ers (Sunshine Mountain, Lizard Head Peak and Gladstone Peak along with unnamed 13ers). The approaches are generally between 5 and 10 miles. Routes can be done in a long day; camping is free in the National Forest or Lizard Head Wilderness Area. The standard routes will have folks on them during the summer hiking season, otherwise you will likely not encounter others. Rockfall is common, do not travel below others, especially commonly less-aware hikers.

Getting There 

All trailheads can be accessed from HI 145.
