Trail fee: $100. Freedom of the hills: priceless
It had to happen sooner or later.
The standard route up Wilson Peak, a fourteener near Telluride, crosses private land.
Property owners decided last year that they no longer wanted people crossing the property.
Now they appear to have changed their minds. Climbers can log on to www.wilsonpeakaccess.com and sign a liability waiver to legally enter the popular Silver Pick trail to the top of the peak.
Just one catch, they also have to pay $100 each via Paypal.
Sounds like most people are, instead, taking the longer, free route to the top via Navajo Basin.
