“Easily accessible from Colorado Spings, with views of the city and 360° mountain views from the top.”— Jessie Morris
There are several forks in the trail which lead off to other areas, but the trail is fairly well signed. The main turnoff is under a mile in (around .75mi), take the right turn to head up to Mt. Muscoco.
Some views of Colorado Springs pop up about half way up the mountain, around 1 mi to 1.25mi.
The last third towards the top gets a little slippery with loose rock and gravel, but just take your time and you'll be fine.
From the top, there are great 360° views of the surrounding mountains, you can spot a Seven Falls waterfall and old mining or lookout town to the southeast.
Overall this is a really great half-day outing.
