The Wilson Canyon Trail heads up canyon along a shaded, forested, streambed. The trail passes the remnants of the old road and bridge used to cross Wilson Canyon before Midgley Bridge was erected in 1939. Our hike is the Wilson Canyon Trail straight ahead past the picnic tables. The trail is a wide path. At a quarter mile are the remnants of the old Wilson Canyon Bridge. Past the remnants, the trail becomes a footpath and follows the streambed up the canyon. At a half mile is the Old Jim Thompson Road, a side trail leading uphill to the left. Continue along the canyon floor straight ahead. At 1.5 miles the canyon narrows. The trail begins its steep ascent out of the canyon to Wilson Mountain. For this hike, instead of climbing out of the canyon, retrace your steps to the trailhead.
