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.

Great trail, not that long of a hike and awesome view once you're at the top. If you want to see a awesome video of it before the hike check out the video I made.

Lovely short uphill hike! Was cold and breezy this morning on top, but well worth it. A couple of spots caused for caution with gravel and the trail on a sloped hill, but it wasn't an issue when paying attention and going only as fast as needed. Definitely doing this hike again.

Perfect! Amazing views and well marked. First time hiking alone. Almost missed the best part near the top. If you are not looking at two lakes and a canyon you are not at the top.
