In June 2003, we did both, 1 day apart. First, we did Wildrose, then the next day did Telescope. I would say that Telescope is a little more difficult, but alot more fun. Wildrose is steeper in places, especially the 1st third and last 3rd, but its shorter and less elevation gain, and less elevation overall. Telescope is a much better trail, without any of the steeper sections that Wildrose has. Note that in the 1st third of the Wildrosehike, is on an old road with old tree stumps that were cut down to feed the Charcoal Kilns at Wildrose. Better views during the Telescope hike, with lots of beautiful flowers along the way - lots of flowers in spring on Wildrose trail also.
