No climbing partners and a free day equals hiking in the foothills. I hadn't been to the summit of Mount Morrison in 12 years. It took me approximately 1 hour an 20 minutes to summit and 40 minutes to descend. After a quick break at the trailhead, I decided to hike it again. The south slopes trail is a good workout on a well-established trail. There is a bit of scrambling just before the summit.
