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.

Beautiful! Very easy incline on a well-kept and simple trail, but still affords amazing views of surrounding mountains and hills, including the zip line at Seven Falls. Very cool, bang-for-your-buck hike. Up and back in 45 minutes. And so close to CO Springs!

This hike was nice and easy with perfect weather, and the views were incredible. You could see Seven Falls and people zip lining in the distance and there were also great views of the city.

Beautiful views and very low key. I did not think it was well marked at all.

It was so beautiful!! We went in the late afternoon which was a perfect time of day to be in the shade of the sun for most of the trail.
