This trail is for those who want to feel on top of the world without climbing a fourteener!

After branching off Mt Cutler trail, the path to Muscoco continues upward with a moderate incline, a few switchbacks, and occasional stair-step portions. When hiked in the morning, trees provide only light shade, until about 3/4 of the way up, when you round the back of the mountain.

The trail (as of 6/17) has a few mild technical spots and rocky patches, easily managed but still a slight scramble.

The path is well-defined, except near the West side of the mountain before the final ascent.Just keep an eye out for red arrows, and you'll be fine!

I couldn't have asked for a better view! As you climb, you have all of Cheyenne Mountain to your South, and the full Gold Camp road winding beneath you to the North. I will definitely be doing this hike again!

Hiked June 19-20. Bunch of cool campsite off the trail during the first couple miles. The real beauty of this hike isn't until 6+ miles in. We chose to go down to refrigerator gulch and McCurdy trail. Tons of different trails and multiple loops so you can make it as long as you want. I would suggest doing more than just the goose creak trail if your going over night

pretty easy hike with beautiful views

beautiful trail.. love the red rock walking path

Hiked with dogs today! It is still a lot of snow on a trail closer to the lake. Trail is hard to find but watch for people foot prints, easy to coordinate where the trail goes. Snow will probably be gone by the middle of July!

An excellent, covered trail with a variety of attractive from wading streams, wild flowers, decent climb and incredible vistas of waterfalls, lake and Indian Hills Wilderness. Worth every stride.

Still alot of snow and mud on the west side of Georgia pass. It looks like someone had gone through until you get to the trees. That is where the drifts are. It was challenging to try to back up out of there. The rest of the drive was great.

Grays Peak was pretty straight forward this morning. Got to the trial head at 8am after the almost 3mi of very bumpy dirt road. Lot was almost full when I arrived. Little bit of snow along the way but nothing that can't be walked over. Made it to the summit in just under 2hrs. Headed over to Torreys right after and was also basically snow free. The path back to the main trail from Torreys was a little snowy and could see it getting more messy once it starts melting more. Roundtrip was about 4hr30m. Beautiful day out!

We went on Father's Day thinking it would be fun but the trail was super busy. The trail was good but won't do it again.

A pleasant hike, yes strenuous, but a nice gain in elevation at a quick rate, The payoff is well worth the trek. Having been on this trail twice I have experienced different conditions: the first time up, the wether was cool and drizzly and the only concern was slippery, muddy surfaces on some hairy-steep switchbacks. However, the second time around, just this last June, included a great deal of snow at expecially critical points in the trail-- namely, the boulder field and at the top of the switchbacks as you reach the plateau where the lake sits. Just enough of the unexpected that added a welcome challenge to the hike. The lake was still frozen but the beer and the jerky at the top, and a little snooze in the warm sun before heading back down sealed the deal. I highly recommend this trail.
