very easy but pretty place. only did about 3 miles but I like it out here

Great trail. If you want to do the loop I suggest going up the rocky switchbacks.

Pretty easy, but great view!

Difficult hike-not for typical beginner/intermediate hiker. Had difficulty staying on the correct trail. Took wrong trail early on- went right, should’ve stayed left. Trail is very loose- mostly dirt/gravel. Summit is great. Good views of city and Rampart Range.

Great causal trail :)

great hike, a bit steep but short with great views. very little ice/snow.

Be prepared for a rough hike back down. I only ended up on my rear once. Your legs will be tired when you get to the top, but coming down is a workout too! Tip for the way down: be in a semi crouched position, find the path with the most loose scree available and ride it down. Otherwise you are on loose dirt which is harder to stay upright on while going down the mountain

Worth the trek. Although at the saddle, it was hard to find the trail. Take the trail due East next to the fencing. just before the summit, the trail becomes very steep. the view from the summit you can see Mt Cutler, Mt Muscoco, Mt Buckhorn, the canyon, the view of the city, and Garden of the Gods.

Love this trail. Its hard, but I love it!

Our family’s first hike after moving to the Colorado Springs area. Loved it. I carried our 1.5yo toddler on my back with minimal difficulty and for not being in great “high altitude” shape yet. 6yo daughter did great as well. Most difficult part of the hike is the loose gravel coming down, just gotta take your time. Beautiful/very windy view at the top. Look for the Visitor’s Log inside the green ammo box at the summit.

I started the trail heading west. The trail was not marked, however easy to track. It was a great hike up the first few peaks. However to get the real ah-ha moments you need to head about 200 yards off trail. I dropped this trail a star because the last 2 miles of the loop are simply walking a automobile road, not very glamorous. The mile and a half before that road are great mountain biking trails so stay alert on foot!

great trail! not too hard not to easy. clocks in as 5.8 miles

Honestly really enjoyed this trail! Very difficult for a beginner/intermediate hiker. I didn’t finish all the way up, but I play on going back for sure!

It was a nice walk around both loops, and the geology was super impressive. I don't need to go back again, but I'm happy I got to see what was there.

This place is beautiful ❤ to get here there is about an hour and a half of just road, no gas stations, no bathrooms. There is a couple of miles of only dirt roads. once you get there the first overlook has a very clean bathroom. The second overlook not far from the first has just a parking area. Again, this place is beautiful, it's like you are on another planet.

Started at 6 am...was a little disappointed that after hiking all day....the summit house only had t-shirts that said I Hiked from the car....way too commercialized....and too many people. Prefer less crowded 14ers....

Beautiful trial along the creek side. The end gets a bit more difficult with rock scrambling but worth it! Trail was pretty iced over but still passable. Very enjoyable with the dogs!

The descriptions say dogs are allowed. Was just there today and it says NO DOGS allowed.

One of the best local hikes in the springs! Good little workout at the end for the final summit push. Excellent views over North Cheyenne Canon.

No signage to this trail. Totally missed where it started and went up to St. Mary's falls instead. Still a great hike but man, why don't these parks make it clear where the trail heads are??

I've written a blog post about this hike @ www.break-trail.com

First 14er! Started sometime around 5:30 AM. Had some difficulty following the trail in the dark (with head lamp) and missed the 646A sign. Had to use the All trails app to help. Once on the right trail, no problems until the last 1/4 mile scramble d/t missing some cairns. Fun hike. Felt like I did millions of squats. Definetly felt the burn in some areas. Beatiful scenery. Of course loads of people at the summit. It is what it is. Parking for this trail is a bit bumpy, go at a snails pace especially in the dark!

Such a fun hike, and my dog loves it as much as I do. The creek and bridges make it more interesting. It is beautiful and not too difficult.

Light snow in the shade but very hikeable in February. Combined with Raspberry for a nice two-fer.

Popular area. A good climb for some exercise. Nice views at the top. Didn't like walking paved road for just a short jaunt, but otherwise a nice trail. More info and pics here: https://etbtravelphotography.com/2017/12/30/road-trip-denver-to-dallas-and-back/

Nice hike. Mount Cutler was easy so we came back to try Mount Muscoco. We had some snow recently so it made for a challenging climb and slide coming down. Breathtaking view from the top. Near the top became harder and keep an eye on not wandering off the trail.

The hike is fun, it’s just kind of easy to get lost if you aren’t on your phone looking for direction most of the time. Great view once you get to the top though, and bring something to put in the geocache. Oh and follow the pink streamers tied to the trees. They lead the way.

Summited Pikes Peak from here on 16 Feb. Road to trailhead was snowy but easily passable for my truck in 2WD. Trail was easy to follow below the tree line, but lost it a few times above. Just follow the cairns. Huge winds at the summit, but very little snow. Didn’t use any floatation or traction up or down. Great and tough winter hike!!
