Details

From the Matthew-Winters TH we hike south on trail toward Red Rocks Park to where the trail crosses the north ridge of Mt Morrison.  We leave the trail and follow the ridge steeply to the summit.  We return the way we came.  There could be some scrambling.  This north route is exploratory to the leader who has climbed to the summit by the south ridge numerous times.  This is a close by hike to finish in time for the CMC annual dinner later in the day.  Oh yes, views from the top (directly above the Red Rocks stage) of the metro area are great.
