Ascent Trip Report

After trudging (with hiking poles) about a half mile up a strenuous 800 feet on the Mt. Morrison South Ridge Trail (TH: Entrance 4 to Red Rocks Park off Morrison Road), the trail proceeds west slightly downhill. At this point, turn about 200 feet to the right (north & off-trail) to find the high-point overlook, where a four-foot section of telegraph pole has been placed as a makeshift bench.

NB: The GPS Track shows a continuation from the Scenic Overlook to the summit of Mt. Morrison.
