Ascent Trip Report

Did the Morgan/Percival loop for the first time on 1 August 2017 and was not disappointed! I linked up with the Mt. Morgan Trail via the Morse Trail, then the Mt. Morgan Trail ascended gently, then got progressively steeper. Near the summit, I turned left onto a spur path to the top. On this path, I climbed some ladders, squeezed through a boulder cave, then scrambled a bit to the excellent near-summit viewpoint. From there, I went over to the true summit, which was wooded with some restricted views.

From there, I went 0.8 mi east to Mt. Percival.
