Wore shorts and a t-shirt for today's summit of Mount Morrison. 60 degree weather made for a pleasant late morning/early afternoon hike. We took the south slopes route. Pretty steep route that gives you a good little workout. Clear skies today from Longs Peak down to Pikes Peak. Fantastic views of the Denver Metro and Front Range. Fun little scrambling opportunity just under the summit.

Lots of elevation gain in this short bugger with amazing views of some of the big boys out west like Mt Evans and Pikes Peak!

Hiked/ran up and then explored down to the towers looking for a route down the northeast to Matthews Winters with no success. Then came back up and ran down. 90 minutes roundtrip...would've been just over an hour to the summit and back.
It was a clear day, so from the top I could see Pikes Peak to the south, Mt Evans to Gray's Peak to the West, and Long's Peak to the North. Pretty cool to see many of the Front Range 14ers from one easy to get to spot in town.

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

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.

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.

this mountain really stands out from the west side of denver, so it was nice to have explored it

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.

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!
MattK - Jul 27, 2012 5:24 pm Date Climbed: May 24, 2008Lots and lots
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.
