The Mueller Park Trail epitomizes the metro-to-mountains convenience of living in the Great Salt Lake Valley at the foot of the Wasatch Range. Within minutes, literally, the nearby suburban jungle is transformed to a tranquil, backcountry ecosystem of lush riparian growth mixed with hardwoods and conifers. The valley’s droning clamor is replaced by spirited sounds of nature, and the odor of urbanization succumbs to the wood’s deep, earthy bouquet. Through breaks in the forest’s cover are good views of the Great Salt Lake and the metropolitan valley.

This trail is one of the most popular trails in the area, and for good reason. The lower section in well groomed with most of the rocks/roots removed by boy scouts and other groups. This makes for an extremely fast/fun downhill that is sure to build biking confidence. Unfortunately the trail is crowded most of the time, so be sure to check your speed around blind corners. The upper section is slightly more technical, and in my opinion more fun than the lower part. The climb is sustained, but never gets too steep.

This is a fun trail but there are a ton of day hikers on the lower half. Good scenery ride.
