Mount Morrison is one of the most prominent peaks of Denver's Front Range and the metro area. It is located right behind Red Rocks Amphitheater. The route is very simple just follow the path up to the left after the closed gate. however don't let the low elevation and simple access fool you this is not an easy hike. The 1st mile of the hike follow a power line up the ridge you will switch back a minor amount but for the most part you go straight up. The trail is very loose soil and will be slick. When wet this section of the trail turns into a mud slide (could be fun and painful at the same time). After the initial up section you will get a break followed by another short climb up more loose soil. The next half mile is easy walking with great views, this would be a good time to check the weather and make sure you have time for another hour of hiking. Once you get to the final ridge the hike turns into a class 2 maybe low class 3 scramble. You will need to use your hands to pull yourself up. You will soon be at the summit with great views of Denver and the Divide to the west.Show more

Start from the parking lot and walk about 100 yards, cross a stream, and continue straight on the Village Walk Trail. After 0.4 miles, take the Red Rocks Trail to the south. You will see the Morrison Slide rising in the distance. As you get closer, you can see the trail switchbacking up the side of Morrison Slide. After another 0.6 miles, you cross a stream. Just after the stream crossing, you come to the junction with the Morrison Slide Trail. Go up the Morrison Slide Trail and you will be rewarded with a pleasant walk along the edge of a 20 foot cliff. A nice resting spot is found just before you start descending the other side of the slide. This descent is a challenging mountain bike trail, so watch out for the bike riders struggling up the fairly rough trail. When you reach the Red Rocks trail, go north to return to your starting point. Warning: Other than the two stream crossings, there is little shade on this trail. It is best in the morning or evening.Show more
