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.

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.

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.

Mild climb all the way to the top. Great vistas ever changing -- city views, forest views, peaks. Dog poop bags left by people along the way. All in all, an above average hike.

A bit harder than I thought. Very much uphill the whole way but a beautiful view at the top. Makes for a great workout
