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.

Absolutely loved this hike. Was the perfect Pre-Thanksgiving feast workout. Views were wonderful and trail was easy to navigate.

This is great for a quick hike. I've even left work on an afternoon in summer and gone up/back in around two hrs. Very convenient access, although parking crowds up on weekends in summer. Be careful on the rocks of the upper part, esp. with kids, it can be slippery on way down.

this is a really nice trail, that is well marked and somewhat challenging, particularly to rookies to this area. The views from the summit are magnificent and very much worth the effort to get there.

Well marked and challenging. Wonderful nearly 360 views at the top. Some rock scrambling was involved so not ideal for a beginner.
