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.

Did this hike late in the afternoon and there were only a couple of hikers on the trail. There is some fun rocky terrain and plenty of places to get good views. Overall a really fun hike that you can do in a couple of hours.

Combined this with the Mt. Cutler trail. Great workout! Be aware of the bit of rock scrambling and loose gravel...I was wearing regular running shoes and kept sliding around on the way back down. Beautiful views at the top make it totally worth it.

The beginning starts out easy but don't let the last bit underestimate you.

Harder then some other trails in the area, but worth it. Some of the trail near the top is a bit harder to discern, but after scrambling over some boulders it's pretty easy to find.

I didnt realize it was 3.7 each way so I dragged my dog and parents on this and they struggled! I loved it though!
