Open, lots of snow and a little ice. Wife and I just did this as our 2nd hike ever (just moved from SC) rookies don’t shy away it’s an easy path (basically a service road). Picturesque views, have fun

Loved it!!

First hike on a Cheyenne Mountain trail, heavy snow and white out. Ice under the snow in areas . I needed teeth on my boots, the gear I had was to wimpy. Steep in areas, challenging for a short legged person to do. Nice workout. Even with the weather we ran into four other groups. We opted for this trail because the road was too slick for us to go any further up the mountain. They closed the road as we were leaving.

Some pretty underwhelming bridges. I will say the middle of Cheyene Canon was very nice though. It was super windy, very quiet and peaceful, may as well just hang out around the center and views from the side and skip the bridges.

Trail is indeed open and lovely!

Beautiful marked trail even in all the snow!! Great views of the mountains. I had it at 5.4 miles.

Nice trail!

Great trail and very easy to hike

Awesome trail, some sketchy parts but that makes it fun. My husky and German Shepherd loved it

Open today! Lots of people hiking. Gorgeous as always.

very nice trail run

Anyone know if it’s still closed?

This is a beautiful hike. The trailhead is about a mile from the parking lot on the right and is marked as 622. Above the last bridge, there’s a lot of loose gravel/rocks that can get a bit sketchy at times. The trail shifts to 622A, which will take you to the Apens. After the Aspens, you will come to a trail junction. To the far right you will see an unmarked trail that will take you to the top of Keneo. This hike is all up, but definitely worth it. Took us about 2 hours up and about and 1:15 to get down. We took lots of picture.

Beautiful trail. Very scenic with the running water, bridges and foliage. The only downside was the walk from the parking lot to the trailhead. It was littered with dog waste so you had to be careful where you walked. Pet owners need to pick up after their pets.

Everything you need and want in a hike!

Trail is maintained very well, very calming hike next to the flowing stream. The entire trail is uphill, however the top is worth reaching for the view of the valley.

well marked path, went there to hike and ended up getting out of the way of lots of mountain bikers, was some really nice places to see and take pix, but i'm sure I'll be going back to do this soon.

Well marked and great views. Great trail to see some wildlife if the right time of year.

Beautiful trail. Steep in places and had to do a little scrambling and hiking, but well worth the effort.

Just hiked it today. Very pretty trail with a good size aspen grove at the end. The leaves will be gone soon. Some of the trees are already bare. Hurry if you want to see them. The trail is definitely moderate with one pretty sketchy spot if you continue past the last bridge. You won’t like that part if you’re not too crazy about heights. Lots of slippery loose gravel. It’s more like 5.8 miles there and back if you keep going to get to the aspens.

I love Muscoco! I've done it a few times and find the view breathtaking with each visit! If I've learned anything on this trail, it's that a good pair of shoes makes all the difference! Don't be a dumb-dumb like myself and wind up with nasty blisters. I'm a decently in shape 25 year old and found it a little on the challenging side. I only rated it a 4 instead of 5 due to the lack of parking.

One of my favorite trails by far! The views are so beautiful. I went midway on a Monday and there were no other hikers on the trail. The summit is so peaceful and quiet. Would definitely recommend.

The dog restriction is unfortunate but was bound to happen. We would frequently hike out dog poop that others had left behind on this trail. To add insult to injury, the town didn’t have any disposal bins at the trailhead, so often times we would have to drive into town to dispose of the waste properly...that certainly didn’t help matters, I’m sure. I wish there was a way to punish the irresponsible dog owners and not all of all of us (some poop cams following by some social media shaming?) because this is bound to happen on all of our trails. If the city willing to spend money to have police officers patrol the trail, then please ticket the people not following the rules instead of punishing all of us. It’s frustrating to the good dog owners out here who are cleaning up after the bad ones.

Hiked this trail today. Trail maintenance group were working on the trail which is very well maintained. As Ashley Reed pointed out last week this trail us NOT marked as Seven Bridges Trail, but as Trail 622. Trailhead is about a mile up Gold Camp Road from the final parking lot above Helen Hunt Falls. We only hiked up to Bridge #7, but others coming down from the top of the trail said the aspens were peak. North Cheyenne Creek runs all along the trail with several small falls. Beautiful trail, great day!

Very good hike! Challenging but very rewarding. We went over labor day weekend so it was busy. Uphill the whole way made for a great workout. Would recommend!

Nice views and not hard at all

This trail was OPEN yesterday-rough ascent and descent due to steep incline and trail conditions but worth it for views at top. Palmer lake police were patrolling it to enforce no dogs rule.

Great uphill hike. Used it for training (backpacking) for my dog and I. Uphill the entire way out, so downhill back. Rewarded w/ a beautiful aspen meadow at the top. Lots of creek access for water and ambiance. Really enjoyed it. 5.8 miles out and back.

This trail is really well maintained! We got to the trail around 9am on Saturday and there were only 5 vehicles. When we returned two hours later there were a lot more vehicles. The trail was crowded and only passed a handful of other hikers. We ended up taking a different trail (vayhinger) before the loop that led us down to the reservoir. One of the nicest hikes we’ve been on— really enjoyed it! Some of the aspens were just starting to change color
