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 hike, 6 yr old had no trouble. Fun (free!) view of 7 falls near the top of the trail.

A short, challenging, and very scenic trail. The view of Colorado Springs and Seven Falls are amazing!!

Awesome trail for a young child as well! The views and overlook are pretty neat. Though, the trail does need a slight clean up.

It was a nice hike pretty short, there was quite a bit of dog poop, so as you are walking the trail you will smell it. pretty views though on the way up.

Nice trail run! Was VERY icy on the bottom back in Jan. No ice at this point (April). Lots of dog poop at the bottom so be careful. Towards the top it clears up lol
