Mt. Cutler Hiking Trail
Introduction

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.
