Wilkerson Pass is a high mountain pass in the Rocky Mountains within Pike National Forest of Colorado and marks the eastern boundary of South Park (Colorado basin). The pass is traversed by U.S. Highway 24 with a Forest Service visitor center at the summit along with a few short trails. The summit has a mild approach on both sides and does not cause problems for vehicles in winter, generally. The pass is about 50 miles (80 km) west of Colorado Springs and is surrounded by peaks over 14,000 feet (4,300 m) with Pikes Peak of the Front Range to the east and the Collegiate Peaks of the Sawatch Range to the west (see photo above).
Elevation: 9,507 ft (2,898 m)
