Moffat County Colorado Hiking Trails

Wilson Mesa Trail #1800

White River National Forest

Available for hiking and horseback riding, the 6.82 mile Wilson Mesa Trail travels in an easterly direction through open meadows & aspen. After 0.5 mile, the trail drops into a fork of Morapos Creek and climbs up a ridge top to the Wymore Lake Trail junction. Wilson Mesa Trail then drops into the main fork of Morapos Creek, crosses it, and again climbs a small ridge before dropping gradually into the east fork of Morapos Creek. 

After following this stream for 0.75 mile, the trail leaves the bottom and switchbacks up to a bald ridge before reaching Wilson Mesa. The trail now turns south following the divide between Morapos Creek & Pine Creek for 3 mils merging in the west end of Salt Park where it meets the Salt Park Trail #1114.

To reach Wilson Mesa Trail from Meeker Colorado, travel east & north along CO 13 for 34 miles and turn southeast onto CR 41 (Morapos Creek Road). Continue along CR 41 for 12 miles to the Forest boundary, continue another 0.25 miles to Morapos Campground. Wilson Mesa trailhead is located 300 yards further at the end of the road.
