Mt Cutler TH  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed this one while staying at the Cliffhouse in Manitou Springs. The snow was icy in places but it was well worth the effort. And we had the summit to ourselves.

from the west  Sucess!

Dropped off Gold Camp Road where it turns south, and followed the surprisingly clear trail over Daniels Pass before heading up the west slopes.

Mt. Cutler icy route  Sucess!

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

Std. route, unstd. conditions  Sucess!

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.

Via Mount Cutler Trail  Sucess!

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

easy, short, and sweet  Sucess!

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

East slopes  Sucess!

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.

Walking the Dog  Sucess!

Nice trip with the dog. Brought the camera and got some great pics. A nice leisurely 1.5 hour hike.

A loop over Muscoco  Sucess!

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.

Snow adventure  Sucess!

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.

Fall Fog  Sucess!

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.

Fall sunshine  Sucess!

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.

from Cutler trailhead  Sucess!

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

From Mount Cutler Trailhead  Sucess!

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.
