Mount Wilson was named after A.D. Wilson - a topographer with the Hayden Survey. He was among the first ascent party that climbed the Peak through the south ridge (a route not climbed today) on September 13th, 1874. However, It is the highest point in the Lizard Head Wilderness of San Juan National Forest.
Naturally, Mount Wilson is not noticeable from a distance but is easily identifiable due to several antennas close to the summit. However, it is ranked among the top ten most difficult Colorado fourteeners to climb.
Mount Wilson is a fairly solid summit with blocky white granite that will get your attention as it is also very airy. Further, the mountain consists of four small glaciers on its summit. These glaciers are the southernmost modern glaciers in the Rocky Mountains and the most southerly in the contiguous United States outside the Sierra Nevada in California.
Mount Wilson is the 16th highest summit in Colorado at 14,246 ft (4,342m). Again, it has a prominence of 4,024ft (1,227m) and an elevation gain of 1,346m.
Mount Wilson is ranked as the highest summit of the San Miguel Mountains range among the Rocky Mountains of North America.
