Overview

Morgan Peak is 12,474 ft / 3,791 m mountain peak near Montezuma, Colorado. 
This un-ranked ''12er'', according to Listofjohn                           
Views from the ridge
and Garry Roach list is 382 highest among ''12ers'' and 1019 highest peak in Colorado. Morgan Peak is not much of mountain, but it's nice complimentary peak on the way to more known 13ers in this area. I'm not sure if anyone want to hike this peak as a individual peak, but it makes nice hike together with Santa Fe Peak, Geneva Peak and others. Morgan Peak wont disappointed you with one thing, its views of Greys Peak and Torreys Peak and some other well know peak in the area such as Mount Edwards, Mc Clellan Mountain, Ruby Mountain and others. Getting to this mountain is very easy, with proper vehicle you can drive on Santa Fe Roadalmost to 12,300 feet, and from saddle it's only 30 minutes hike to the summit.
