Wilson Peak 5353

Elevation: 5,353 ft
Prominence: 453

This peak is not in the book. Also see the Owyhee Mountains Peaks List for all of the peaks in this range.


Wilson Peak and nearby Soldier Cap are great spring hikes. Wilson Peak’s summit is accessed by a 4WD road that is used to service the communications equipment on it’s summit. The views from the summit are massive. The road is a good hiking trail and would also work for mountain bikers looking for a strenous climb. If you climb the peak from the junction of the Wilson Creek Road and  the Wilson Peak Road you will travel 2.5 miles with a 950 foot elevation gain. The peak is open, treeless country and for those looking for a longer climb there are several places along the Wilson Creek Road that will work as starting points. Class 1 via the road and Class 2 for other lines. USGS Soldier Cap
