Mount Muscoco Trail is a 3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Colorado Springs, CO that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from February until November.
The Mount Muscoco trailhead is the same as Mount Cutler trailhead and the trails are the same for about a half mile until they split to go their separate ways. The trail is 2.1 miles one-way with about 1,300 feet elevation gain. Wonderful views at the top.
Nice walk close to town. Did mt cutler too
Great workout with excellent views!
This was such a pleasant surprise. Nice gentle climb and the views are spectacular!
A fun, moderately challenging hike with pretty views.
Absolutely loved this hike. It's got amazing mountain views the whole time, and the top is such a treat. For the most part, it's really well marked. I actually started off doing Mount Cutler, but it was so poorly marked I switched over to Muscoco. If you're not used to the elevation, this will definitely be a challenge-- bring lots of water. The section near the top is steep but well worth it.
Was able to hike up Mt. Muscoco and Mt. Cutler in the same day. Mt. Muscoco is more difficult than Cutler, but not too difficult. Great views at the end of both.
Great views along the whole trek up. Took a little under an hour to make the summit so not too demanding. Gets a little steep in spots but the payoff at the top is totally worth it.
great views, hiked in fresh snow making the last half mile difficult to scramble up and to follow the trail. very nice hike.
Nice climb! Shares the first half mile or so with Mount Cutler, then splits off to the right. It's mostly moderate with some difficult spots. The trail is a little difficult to follow at the end but the view from the summit is pretty nice! My 2 year old dog had no trouble making it up and back down. There was relatively little traffic, we only saw about 5 people after the split with the Mount Cutler trail.
Heavy traffic in the first leg before you get to where the trail splits. Go left for Mt. Cutler and right for Muscoco. Great views but a scramble to the summit. You're lower half will be tested lol you are almost on all fours clawing to the top but the top is so worth it. Great views and boulders to perch on. Flies are crazy up there during the summer so bring some bug spray or they will chase you out of there!
Great little hike with awesome views
Great views, fun trail. The summit section will make you work for it.
A great fall hike with good views. This one can test your stamina in places.
My favorite trail. Views are amazing.
Can be a Tough scramble near the top, the trail gets confusing but views are great
