Mount Wilson is the highest peak in the San Miguel Mountains and the 16th highest in Colorado. Due to its remote location and difficult terrain, it is one of the hardest 14ers to reach and also ranks as among the top ten hardest to climb. It is named after A.D. Wilson, the chief topographer with the Hayden Survey and member of the first group to climb the peak in 1874.
