Forest Service opens trail to Wilson Peak

NORWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service has opened a popular hiking trail southwest of Telluride after a seven-year battle over public land.

The Rock of Ages Trail restores public access to Wilson Peak, a popular fourteener in the Lizard Head Wilderness.

The trail was reopened after the Trust for Public Land purchased key private parcels on Wilson Peak and in Silver Pick Basin after the trail was closed in 2004.
