An easy hike on the South Side of Cheyenne Canyon Here is a leisurely family hike you can do in a morning or afternoon. The hike is only 2 miles in length. Mt Cutler - named after Henry Cutler, one of General Palmer's friends and a supporter of Colorado College - rises above Cheyenne Creek about half way up the Cheyenne Canyon, on the south side. The trailhead is well marked and has ample parking. Spectacular views are available from the summits. I'd recommend early morning or late afternoon for the best lighting.

Nice easy family hike

Easy early morning trail. Has a lot of foot traffic. Great for breaking in visitors to the beauty of the state without breaking a sweat.

A really nice hike in Colorado. Great big views and a easy walk! Worth checking out. Parking is limited to a small lot and pull offs.

It was a good, easy trail. Great views on the way up! Also get to see from a distance 7 Falls and their zip lining setup. Really cool, did this on Memorial Day 2017 so there was some traffic out but still a nice easy hike.
