South ridge  Sucess!

Nice training run close to town, though footing on the way down is slick in places, and the views were spoiled by smoke.

Mt. Morrison Colorado

One of my Mom's co-workers and I hiked to the top (and back down) back in the mid-1970s when we lived in Golden. I do not know the exact date but it would have been in 1976 most likely.

South Ridge  Sucess!

A challenging hike close to town. Some scrambling was required near the summit (had to help our dog a bit), but from the top we had a great 360 view. Be mindful of the loose rock and dirt on the way down.

South Ridge  Sucess!

A nice hike with my wife after returning to CO after a week at sea level. It was a little windy, but not bad. We enjoyed seeing Red Rocks from a different vantage point.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Have climbed Mt Morrison many times by multiple routes. It's a great hike to have close to the city. Found a mule deer antler on a previous hike!

Lots and lots  Sucess!

Climbed this numerous times from several different directions. Unfortunately, the east approaches are closed, but honestly the most fun routes are the north and south ridges anyways.

North Ridge from Matthews/Winters Park  Sucess!

Hiked up from the Matthews/Winters Park trailhead after meeting with Stacey early in the morning.

The trails are great for trail running. Good conditions and very developed. Had to bushwhack all the way up to the summit. It is kind of frustrating to arrive to a summit full of antennas, metals and wires. Nice views from up there, though.

I wished I climbed it the following day at night, just to listen and maybe hear "Scorpions" and "Tesla" performing at Red Rocks Amphitheater. :).

Morrison  Sucess!

This afternoon I climbed Mount Morrison from the east and above. I chose this route because I had already climbed the peak from the south several years ago. The trail was steep, but there was only a little ice on it. Denver was quite smoggy, so views weren’t good to the east, but there were some pretty good views west despite the clouds.

On the return, I took a different trail down, but when I got to the bottom there was a sign saying the trail was closed.

South Ridge  Sucess!

I was pleasantly surprised at how rugged and fun this route was! Topped out on a beautiful sunny day. Just as another party was descending, I found a credit card and got it promptly returned to its rightful owner! This mountain is a great little gem so darn close to Denver!
