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.

Trail was fairly steep all the way. No restrooms near the trail. Hard to find parking. Beautiful scenery.

Overall the trail was fairly easy to hike up and the view at some parts was pretty cool, but over all I felt kind of disappointed. I was expecting more. Still a fun hike.
