telemarkdudeVia Swisher Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2016


Took McNeil trail almost exactly 2 miles to the unmarked Swisher trail(cairned). Swisher trail then climbs steeply up to the summit ridge. Several bumps south along the ridge gets you to the top.

Great hike, hit both mtns. Tried to go to antenna farm, but camera scared us off. Saw lots of cool stuff. What's up w/ that "Cheyenne Lodge" at the top of The Horns? Great time, hiked w/ Phil.

Climbed from Old Stage and Transmitter Lane to the true summit. Not much snow for this time of year. Friend Bill went with me. Been driving to the antenna farm many times over the past 18 years to work up on the towers, figured it was time to actually climb this mountain!!!

This was a great way to start the month of November. Just the rigt amount of snow was on the mountain: Enough to make it look like winter but not so much that the post-holing was intolerable. We enjoyed lunch and a Stella on the summit before following our steps back down to the vehicle. The steep Swisher trail is a bit of an adventure in slick conditions! Partners: Deb & Kevin.

Took the excellent MacNeil Trail to the top of the Horns, then backtracked and up the Scheiffer (?) trail to the Cheyenne Mtn saddle and bushwhacked the ridge to the summit. Made the mistake of descending the north slopes back down to the MacNeil trail; rough bushwhack with some dispersed cliff bands and thick vegetation.

A rather warm Labor Day ascent with my wife. We were off a little as we gained a sub-summit first, but made quick work over to the true summit, with hundreds of thousands of lady bugs.

Date Climbed: Oct 25, 2003


I made a trip down to Colorado Springs to see a Sedge Wren which is rare in Colorado. After whiffing on the bird I headed to the prominent landmark of Cheyenne Mountain, found a place to park and just headed up where it seemed easiest, wasn't sure of legal access at the time.

Found the trail near the stables easily. Went up the hill N/NE, passed a fire ring then headed directly east up the steep slope of Cheyenne. Great fun.

shknbkevia antenna farm road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 28, 2004


Climbed Cheyenne from Old Stage via the antenna farm road. Left the road at a 9000' saddle and bushwacked due west to the summit. Nice hike to do in winter.

psledlieRe: Route Climbed: Southeast Slopes Date Climbed: Summer 2001

I was going to try this hike, but when I drove up Rock Creek Canyon Rd., there was a No Trespassing sign. I initially went the 4.9 miles past Gate 1, but that dirt road also had a a No Trespassing, violators, etc.. Which road did you use?

Thanks for any info,
