For a limited time in 2017, Mueller State Park will be offering a trial period for pets on this designated trail. Please be sure to stop and pick up the dog information before you venture out on the trail with your dog. Not all trails are open. The trial period will end on August 31, 2017. PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED ON ANY OTHER TRAILS, IN THE BACKCOUNTRY, OR IN RENTAL CABINS.
The trailhead is located about a mile and a half from the entrance to Mueller State Park (entry fee required). The length of trail is 2.9 miles. It does not make a loop so either you have to return via the campground road or hike back the way you came. The doubletrack trail is well marked and begins with a quick descent for the first mile at a fairly steep grade. The second mile is relatively flat with some rolling hills, winding through pine and aspen groves. The last mile is an easy ascent and meets up at the trailhead of Grouse Mountain Overlook #16.
