Join the Colorado Mountain Club in our Women Crush Wednesday Series!  



There is an optional "Wine Down Wednesday" happy hour at Trailhead Taphouse & Kitchen, sponsored by our friends at New Belgium after the hike. Check out their website here: https://www.trailheadtaphouse.com/. New Belgium has generously offered to give all members who sign up for the hike a free New Belgium beer on tap! Thank you!



This is a great out-and-back route that follows the full Mount Morrison trail. Start at Entrance 4 of Red Rocks on Titans Rd. There is no trailhead marker, just a generic trail sign off to the left 50 meters after turning onto Titans Rd. It's a short, but fairly steep climb to the top, followed by a very technical and fast descent. We will take extra caution going down as the terrain gets pretty rocky on the descent.  



Dogs on leashes are okay on the hike - however, Trailhead Taphouse & Kitchen does not allow dogs.




Notes

Please bring the essential ten essentials on the hike. Click here for the complete list.  This trail is in the sun the whole time, so please be sure to bring sun protection (sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses).  In July, we also need to be wary of Rattlesnakes and heat. So, bring lots of water.
