Morena Butte’s three-peaked summit plateau presides over a diverse landscape of V-shaped canyons, rock-strewn ridges, and grassy depressions known as potreros (pastures). All three peaks are attractive photographically, as they consist of great slabs and boulders of pink-tinted granitic rock weathered into sometimes surreal forms.

A great Hike with tremendous views throughout. Be sure to visit all three peaks at the summit. Quite possibly my favorite hike in the area.
