Pyramid Peak Access

A reminder for anyone skiing in the Pyramid Peak area this winter, PLEASE respect private land when entering and leaving the national forest.  The only access to the Phillip’s Canyon and Pyramid Peak area is along the access trail directly across from the plowed parking on the east side of Fish Creek Rd. ~3 miles north of Wilson.  This access trail crosses private property to the Phillip’s Canyon and Ridge trails and the landowners have been generous to let the public use this area over the years.  That does not however mean that you can ski through their property because you want a few more turns.  Please use the access trail when entering the national forest and be aware of where the property line is between the national forest and private land so on your way out you can traverse down and right and follow signs similar to the one seen here that will lead you along the boundary and to the bridge on the access trail.  Being respectful will help keep this access open for users year round, so please help spread the word among your touring partners.
