Nice 9.5 mi round trip hike from Hunting Hollow Entrance to Coe. Great views from the summit ridge and on the Lyman trail descent.
I have visited Willson Peak several times on mountain bike loops starting from Hunting Hollow and from Coyote Creek entrance. I almost always include Grizzly Gulch in the loop for fun. I've hiked it once so far with Mike from Coyote Creek.
18.1 mile loop from Hunting Hollow, over to Kickham Peak (in the adjacent Cañada De Los Osos Ecological Reserve), then back to Phegley Ridge and up the hill to Willson.
It was foggy and surprisingly windy for late April
Out of Hunting Hollow - Came for Kickham but stayed for Willson, which is several hundred feet higher. Enjoyable hike of 16 miles/4k feet of gain. Lots of choices to make it into a loop hike, fun day indeed. TR is HERE.
Loop out of Hunting Hollow on Easter morning in 2008.
Pics and commentary are here.
Bagged this on the way to Kelly Lake during a backpacking trip in high school.
With Matt and Nora the first time. A lot of fun trails up this peak.
Second time along with Vasquez Peak and Rock Springs Peak on 5/10/2014.
Third time on 11/14/2015 via the Jim Donnelly Trail along with a couple other high points.
