The Mt. Cutler Trail is a popular hike for Colorado Springs residents. Located in North Cheyenne Canyon,
it is a relatively easy one mile trail (one way) with a modest 415 foot gain in elevation. This trail, however, does offer a lot of "bang for your buck"
with scenery and views of Colorado Springs at the summit.
On this page are my photos from March 2007. Happy trails!
|Near the summit, the trail provides a great
view of Cheyenne Mountain, South Cheyenne Canyon and Seven Falls.
I also included this second photos, from a previous hike, in which I zoomed-in as far as
I could to the Seven Falls tourist attraction.

One note of caution: Too often there is a report of a hiker either becoming lost and/or dying on this mountain.
This might be because this trail is considered "easy" and some may not take it seriously enough.
Mount Cutler's broad summit
is deceptive: It's large and broad at the top, and it lures people to mistakenly conclude
they can scamper down the mountain in any direction,
but there are steep, treacherous drop-offs. Be careful. Return the way you came -- on the trail.
