Great hike. Just steep enough. Someone should add a Mt. Kineo this way sign at the final intersection. Hiked it in early spring just after a good snow. Amazingggg!

Cutler is one of our favorite trails. It has so much to offer - steady incline, gorgeous views overlooking Seven Falls and the zip lines, and beautiful views of the canyon and Gold Creek Road. Unfortunately, certain dog owners are ruining it for others by not cleaning up after their pooch. Don't get us wrong; we are dog lovers and respect all those who wouldn't dream of leaving their dog's mess for someone to step in but there are too many people who do just the opposite. If you want to take your dog on a hike, please take the responsibility of taking care of this so we can all enjoy nature at its best!

Wow! You earn your view. Scramble up to Summit is not too bad. Going down is tricky (for anyone with knee problems). Gorgeous vistas at several spots. Interesting granite formations and trees with bare roots. We saw so many dogs! Clearly, a popular weekend hike.

Would easily get 5 stars if it were not for all the dog poop EVERYWHERE. Come on, humans. Show some etiquette and be responsible pet owners. The abundance of dogs severely limits the amount of any wildlife seen here. Have been on the trail several times, never once have we seen a deer or any critter other than birds.
Other than that, it's a nice easy hike for all ages.

Great hike. Gets challenging near the end with more vertical climb than the first half of the trail but rewards you with a great view of Colorado Springs.

I hiked this today and it was an alright hike. Throughout the trail, you'll be walking along the creek which is nice, calm sound to hear it on the way. If you're looking for a city or meadowy view, this isn't much for it. This is more about the experience of the hike but no spectacular view at the end. I would rate it as easy and pleasant - perfect for kids and dogs on a leash. There was some snow on the ground and a dog that wasn't on a leash ran past me and bumped me on an icy spot - maybe people shouldn't let their dogs roam unleashed when there's other people around with icy patches along the trail. :/

Beautiful

Kineo Mountain has a lot to offer. The TH is right up the road from Helen Hunt falls. It is extremely easy to get to in any vehicle. Just complete the Seven Bridges trail route and keep going. You will hit a few spots that are pretty steep but you will be hiking through breathtaking aspens, great views of Cheyenne Canyon, and eventually of Colorado Springs.

The only part that was a little confusing was when you hit a sign for 622 A and 667. Don't take either of those larger trails, there is a smaller trail on the opposite side of the sign, take that one to the summit.
Elevation 9,479 ft.
