An easy 1 mile hike to the summit with awesome views of the Front Range and Colorado Springs

This is a quick hike to add to the list if you're making a trip to the Cheyenne Canon area. Parking is limited to about 15 cars and fills up fast so be sure to start early or the first part of your hike might start from a further parking or pull-off along the road.

This is the same parking lot and trailhead as Mt. Muscoco and is a great hike to pair together!
