Trailhead: park at the 6th bridge (not at overlander trail head!) and go up the small scramble of rock and to your LEFT. Follow this trail through the trees and it intersects with Overlander (#10). Go straight. Do not turn. The small sign is nailed to a pine. Now, if you manage to get lost somehow (it happens) remember that if you’ve come across the HUGE memorial rock at the top from the parking lot, go LEFT on that trail and it’ll intersect with the Morro Peak trailhead!!! Turn RIGHT on to Morro Peak trailhead.

The trail itself has a lot of loose rock about 2/3 of the way up. I’d recommend hiking poles for the both the ascent and decent.
The trail is marked with orange flagging tape as you ascend out of the first 1km or so and sometimes you have to really look for it!
There is a fair bit of scrambling involved, which surprised me, and it was well worth the view at the top.

*The registry is tucked into a plastic cereal-storage type container just below the cross. It could use a new one, as the lid is broken and the inside may get wet.*

Coming back down, you can easily get misguided, as we did, but we managed to find our way back onto the trail :)
Ascent: 1hr 23min
Descent: 2hrs (we took our time)

Worth it for sure!!!!
