The Mount Muscoco trailhead is the same as Mount Cutler trailhead and the trails are the same for about a half mile until they split to go their separate ways. The trail is 2.1 miles one-way with about 1,300 feet elevation gain. Wonderful views at the top.

Trail is well labeled starting from the Mt. Cutler trail head. It splits off from the Mt.Cutler trail and post on the ground with a label will let you know its the Mt. Muscoco trail on the right. I would recommend this to anyone.

I got up here once a month at least for almost the past year now. Takes me 45 minutes to the top and 22 minutes down.I'd say it's moderate trail a little steep towards the summit but plenty of people twice my age go up here and lots dogs as well so nothing to hard worth the trip 360 views of the forest, surrounding mountains & city views of the Springs I usually run as much as I can when I go up it and smoke a lot of weed at the top

It does get very steep towards the summit, but it is absolutely worth it. The views are beautiful. You can see the whole city and the mountains, including Pikes Peak. It can get windy up there, FYI. Definitely recommend it.

This hike was beautiful! The last stretch of the hike before reaching the summit was pretty difficult in my opinion, but the view from the top is completely worth it! Wear good hiking shoes and bring plenty of water and SPF because a good chunk of the trail is in direct sunlight.

Surprised that this trail was rated moderate! It was slightly difficult towards the summit, but the views are totally worth it! Family and very dog friendly.
