Mt. Muscoco Trail is located just a few miles southwest of downtown Colorado Springs in North Cheyenne Canon Park. It is a one way trail that parallels N. Cheyenne Canon Road along the Mt. Cutler trail and then heads west at the trail intersection of Mt. Cutler saddle. The trail can be accessed from the trailhead along N. Cheyenne Canon Road. Along the way you'll see great views of Stratton Open Space and 360 degree views of Colorado Springs. Take this hike for a solitary experience.
Travel south about 0.35 mi. from I-25 (S. Nevada Street exit) and turn west on W. Cheyenne Blvd. Proceed 2.75 mi. to the intersection of N. Cheyenne Canon Road & S. Cheyenne Canon Road. Starsmore Discovery Center is located here. Turn right onto N. Cheyenne Canon Road (past the iron gate) and travel for 1.5 miles to the trailhead on the left side of the road. Look for the “Mt. Cutler Hiking Trail” sign.
North Cheyenne Canyon Road will be closed from September 20, 2021, through May 2022. The park will still be accessible via Gold Camp Road. More information on the project here.
