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.

Short, and busy, especially in the summer, but still a great hike. The view from the top is excellent, especially in late fall.

Amazing views! It took us about 35 minutes to hike up and 25 to come down, stopping for photos a couple times each way. I do not hike often and had about a day to get acclimated to higher altitude, and was comfortable on this trail. The views are incredible as you wind around the trail and then reach the top; there is a spot along the trail where Seven Falls can be seen way off in the distance.
