An easy hike on the South Side of Cheyenne Canyon Here is a leisurely family hike you can do in a morning or afternoon. The hike is only 2 miles in length. Mt Cutler - named after Henry Cutler, one of General Palmer's friends and a supporter of Colorado College - rises above Cheyenne Creek about half way up the Cheyenne Canyon, on the south side. The trailhead is well marked and has ample parking. Spectacular views are available from the summits. I'd recommend early morning or late afternoon for the best lighting.

Loved it.....wish it was a bit longer but enjoyed it nonetheless. It was snowy and a bit slippery but shoes with more traction would have helped; I'll be better prepared next time.
