Mountain Biking Mueller State Park

****   Add a review
#960 of 1,345 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#10146 in the world

There are alot of trails here but not all of them are open for biking. Most of the good trails that may have been open for biking are now closed to bikes. The trails are well marked and some small sections of singletrack can be found (but few are open to bikes). Mostly forest road type trails with sections of sandy, gravely terrain and some pretty steep hills. Good camping here though but you're better off driving down to Woodland Park to bike at Rampart Reservior or Lovell Gulch.

    Nothing wrong with this place, just that there is nothing good about it either. Average beauty relative to where it is located. Trails are so boring, stay home and watch reruns on TV.

    Most trails have now been open to bikes. Simply awesome!

    I agree with most the other reviews... nothing technical here, but wide flat fast trails. Very hard packed and loose, will test you and your bike's cornering skills. I had a lot of fun, but you're either bombing down or crawling up, nothing is flat out here.

    Nice setting and nice trails. Great for a beginner or a XC racer getting some fast laps in. Did not see anyone else except within 400 meters of the TH. Watch out in the early season as there were some trees down that we had to move out of the way/ go around!

    There is a 10 mile loop on the west side of the main park road and an 8 mile loop on the east side. They are not technical. They are smooth and fast, but they are not easy. The hills will have you in your lowest gears. It's a case of earning your turns. I like MSP and it's remote location keeps it from being very crowded, even on the weekends.

    It's been aabout a year and a half since I checked it out, but I think there was a pretty good loop, using Greer, Homestead, Cheeseman ranch, and Elk Meadow trails. I recall it being single track, with some double track mixed in. Maybe I'm wrong. If its double track, its isolated and rolling with no motor vehicles, so still a good ride. Nice forest, good views.
    I'll have to go back and get a GPS track for it, and refresh my memory.
    The park website has a map.

    +Beautiful mixed pine/aspen forest.
    +Great views of Pikes Peak.
    +Some lookouts you can see as far as the Sangre de Christos.
    +Surprisingly uncrowded once you get away fromt he visitors center and the campsites.

    -Bikes are only allowed on a bunch of doubletrack and service roads--no singletrack!
    -Surface is almost all loose gravel
    -In the end, no reason to come here with a bike as the Pikes Peak reigon is full of far better options.
