Great hike with awesome views but a snowy and icy trail, at least in late March.

I started at the Starsmore house parking lot, running the short section of road necessary to reach the Cutler trailhead. After leaving the Cutler trail at the saddle, I plowed through two to four inches of new snow all the way to the summit, with occasional light snow falling. Not very cold, no real wind; hit Cutler on the way back.

Fantastic day. We had the trail all to ourselves, which amazed me, since this mountain is so close to town. Look to the west and see the great outdoors. Look to the east and see the city of Colorado Springs humming along. There is still quite a bit of snow on the north-facing sections of the route - enough to gater-up and kick some steps. We enjoyed lunch/snack on the summit, then headed down. Hiking partner: Deb

Mt. Cutler trailhead, up to the ridge to muscoco. There was quite a bit of snow so i had to pretty much forge my own trail up the east face. Awesome broad summit, stayed a while and enjoyed the view and even took a phone call. RT 2 hours

I left the trail at the last saddle east of the summit, and bushwhacked up the slope and into the gully between the prominent rock face on the northeast side and the true summit, then down the trail. Ran with the dogs. A nice change of pace, slower but doable.

Date Climbed: Apr 1, 2007

cftbq

No foolin'! Ran up the cañon and then the Mt. Cutler trail to the saddle. After summitting Muscoco, I dropped off the west side to Daniels Pass and climbed to Gold Camp Road, which I followed back to the top of the Columbine Trail, then down the trail to finish. About 10 miles, 2,200 ft., just under 3 hours. Fair spring weather.

Ran up from 6,200 ft. after a light snowfall. Saw one other set of fresh prints preceding mine. 48 min. up, 37 down, with 15 minutes spent detouring out to the eastern rock face.

Totally socked in, but no actual precipitation--still had good traction on the rocks. Temperature around 40, but I still took off my windbreaker before reaching the top. Ran up and down from the Cutler TH. Not the fastest ever, but OK. Plenty of solitude; interesting conditions.

Did the Cheyenne Canon twofer--Mt. Cutler via the east face, then on to Muscoco. Beautiful afternoon. As usual, had Muscoco all to myself. A round trip of 2 hrs., 11 minutes from home.

Great Independence day hike. As busy as Cheyene Canyon was, once I got off the Cutler trail I only saw one other person.

One hour from trailhead and certainly wasn't pushing it. Great Views from summit. Lightening strikes on Almagre, so two minutes on summit was probably too long. I saw no one once I stepped off the Cutler trail.

With rain/snow forecast for the next day, I decided to climb Muscoco from the standard Mt. Cutler trail trailhead. I took along Molly the red German Shepard mix. To my surprise, there was virtually no snow, even though the trail is on the north-facing slope! 39 minutes up, 25 minutes down, on a beautiful, sunny day. I never thought to pack the camera, though, so there are no pictures.

A nice run/climb on a warm fall day. 1 hr., 5 min. round trip from the saddle on the Mt. Cutler trail. Not much view to the east from the actual summit, due to trees. but great views to the west. Good trail all the way, lots of solitude. I'll do it again!

Excellent hike that can be done after work if you are looking for something short but rewarding. My friend Pat and I took the Cutler trail to the saddle, then a right turn and the grunt began. Made the summit in 37 minutes as it is on our local El Paso county named summit list. It isn't named on the USGS, but it is on Ormes Pikes Peak Atlas. Awesome views for such a short hike with some pretty big cliffs on the south side of the summit. Look for the Seven Falls observation deck and listen for the waterfalls. Returned via Daniels Pass, then back down to the road. That saves a few minutes because it is not as steep. Turn right on Cheyenne Canyon rd for about 1/4 mile back to the trailhead.
