Senad Rizvanovic - Feb 4, 2023 2:09 pm Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2023Gorgeous February weekend in Front Range
Weather was amazing after couple of cold weeks, great outing around Colorado Springs From Range. Easy, nice hike to Mount Muscoco , great view of Pikes Peak region, definitely coming back for more summits.
garyleutheuser - Apr 27, 2020 9:37 am Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2020Great views, low effort
Excellently-maintained trail to the top, which boasts great views given the short, straightforward hike to get there.

Nice hike with the family on a sunny Spring day. I had the 20-lb baby on my back, and we had no problem tackling this. Fun family hike!
Shipyard - Oct 5, 2019 2:08 pm Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2019Great
Did this hike after doing Mt. Cutler today. Not crowded at all. Very scenic hike. I would rate it intermediate because of the steepness/rocky areas near the summit and the length. I brought my dogs and they were fine and had a great time.
Boorman - Apr 15, 2018 7:25 am Date Climbed: Mar 25, 2018Short, Nice Hike
Quick, easy hike with nice views. Plenty of people, so not exactly a solitary expedition.
crussellbowden - Jul 7, 2017 9:10 pm Date Climbed: Mar 9, 2017CLASSIC LIL LOCAL, THIS ONE IS THE GO TO
(hiked twice since, always a good time with good people)
Foxfulness - Aug 29, 2016 3:54 pm Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2016Sunny, beautiful views.
Nice 4 mile round trip. Great day for it. Sunny, clear view all around. On the way home, it began hailing. Timing is everything.
This trail is good for a short trip, an hour and a half will do at a moderate pace.
Climbing Jack - Sep 7, 2014 4:41 pmNice and Quick
Great workout close to the city.

Started to do Cutler, then the weather held up long enough to do Muscoco first, then Cutler on the way down.
telemarkdude - Mar 30, 2013 12:43 am Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2013Quick and Easy After-Work Hike
Nice after work hike. Almost missed the highpoint with all the trees and bumps on the near level summit area.
knotis23 - Sep 13, 2011 10:38 am Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2011That's Twice
Had to move quick to beat out storm, but still a nice mountain.
LadyWawa - Jan 27, 2011 7:39 pm Date Climbed: Jan 20, 2011Icy Climb
Very icy near the bottom but pretty stable the rest of the way to the top. Really lovely places to sit on the summit also. :)
nc9136 - Jan 4, 2011 3:07 pm Date Climbed: Jan 2, 20112nd time
Trip number 2 up Muscoco. The views from the summit are incredible. Went with yourhorsedoctor and her parents.
yourhorsedoctor - Jan 2, 2011 1:17 pm Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2010Second time up for us, first summit for the parents!
Took my parents for their first "adventure" - now they are hooked!
Jeremy Hakes - Jan 1, 2011 6:39 pm Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2008good
Nice solitude away from Cutler.

Took a friend up Muscoco, 5th time up there and always a fun little hike. Explored the airy south summit overlooking 7 Falls.
cftbq - Jul 24, 2010 1:19 pm Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010once more
Weather is making the high country a trial. Decided to run a local peak with Cimarron for a quick morning outing.
gulo - May 29, 2010 6:56 pm Date Climbed: May 29, 2010Windy day
Climbed up from Mt.Cutler trailhead, it was super windy on top so I didn't linger for very long time
pyerger - Nov 23, 2009 2:49 pmMuscoco
Nice alternative to Cutler.
DWRich - Nov 9, 2009 10:17 pm Date Climbed: Nov 8, 2009Beautiful day
Did the twofer with a couple of friends that hadn't been up either Cutler or Muscoco.
