This trail is brutally steep almost the entire way to the top. The views are amazing with a panoramic view of Denver and make the difficult trek worth it. There were a decent number of people on the trail, and I saw several dogs and a young child make it to the top. You can too!
This is an easy hike with minor elevation change and a well traveled trail. The trail is open to hikers , mans best friend and mountain bikers with lots of great views. Bring some sun screen as most of the hike you will be exposed to the sun.
I created a video guide of the trail that can be found on my YouTube channel below.

This was an awesome hike and great one to train for 14ers on. Almost entirely incline and roughly 2,000 ft of elevation gain. When you turn onto Titans road the trailhead is pretty much within the first 50yds on the left. NOTE, Mt Morrison is the one with the red and white antenna sticking up. Failure to notice this may result in being tricked my the handful of false summits. The final summit is definitely class 3 and requires some scrambling. I basically summited in 65 min from trailhead. At the last leg, i couldnt finish as I had my daughter on my back and didn't want to risk a fall.
This is a challenging trail that really has very few level areas. The power line part of the trail has loose rock that creates a challenge mostly on the way down. Minor bouldering at the summit with great views the whole way. It took me 2.3 hours which included stops for pictures and water. It is hard, but easy to follow. The app was great!
Hiked this last week. Trails started off more as walking then some rocky sections and switchbacks. Good hike, not too challenging but definitely got a workout. Unfortunately it was really foggy though, so didn't get much in the way of views.
