Loved this hike! Seems like moderate to alittle more than moderate. I’m not sure if I would call it advanced but still challenging. I started just before sunrise and was able to watch the sunrise over Colorado Springs at the look out points that were about 10 minutes from the trailhead. Beautiful sight. After about 1.5 miles you reach the saddle before the final climb. I looked up and saw the summit of mt. muscoco and thought to myself “am I going up there!” The view from the top is amazing. My favorite trail so far!!
