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.

It was a pretty descent trail, I wouldn’t recommend going if it just snowed or if it just rained and it’s really cold because ice would be a problem. There was also this really dangerous part was like on one side you had the mountain and on the other side you had a sheer cliff that I wouldn’t recommend falling off of. Other than that small part the views s were great, even in the dangerous part, y if you have a dog then make sure you keep control of him or her on that one part

Cutler is one of our favorite trails. It has so much to offer - steady incline, gorgeous views overlooking Seven Falls and the zip lines, and beautiful views of the canyon and Gold Creek Road. Unfortunately, certain dog owners are ruining it for others by not cleaning up after their pooch. Don't get us wrong; we are dog lovers and respect all those who wouldn't dream of leaving their dog's mess for someone to step in but there are too many people who do just the opposite. If you want to take your dog on a hike, please take the responsibility of taking care of this so we can all enjoy nature at its best!

Beautiful views! Something short and fairly easy, but they need some better markers towards the end of the trail.

Such a beautiful view . Walk down the huge hill at the end of the hike for phenomenal views . Gorgeous with a little snow in October and such a lovely short hike around sunset ! Good if you’re looking for something mellow
