I wanted to take my father-in-law on a nice hike since the weather was cooperating on his visit from North Dakota.  The route we took to Mount Morrison above Red Rocks is slightly more than a simple trail hike though.  It was fairly steep with some loose rock and easy route-finding.  In addition, there is a bit of class 3 scrambling near the summit.  He still enjoyed himself for the most part despite getting sore from the day.
