    Route Description for Morro Peak Scramble

    The Morro Peak trail starts at the Overlander trailhead near the Snaring River in Jasper National Park. Start at the official trailhead with the Parks Canada kiosk and trail sign. Follow the dirt trail until you see a small sign pointing towards Morro Peak. This is a wooden sign nailed to a tree.
