This heavily-trafficked, moderate trail climbs to the summit of Mt. Muscoco. It shares the same trailhead as Mt. Cutler but offers a bit more challenge. You might bring a map for this one; you have to make the right choice at four different intersections to find your way to the summit.
Dogs on a leash are welcome on this trail.
