Mueller Park to Elephant Rock Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Mueller Park Trail is the quintessential easy-access trail: From neighborhood to trailhead is only 500 feet. Beginning at a shaded bridge over Mill Creek, the trail climbs switchbacks beneath tall pine and fir and then winds deeper into the canyon through the hollows that crease the hillside.

As the trail flanks the mountain it opens at times into scrubby Gambel oak and bigtooth maple. There are occasional viewpoints down into Bountiful and the Great Salt Lake below, but the trail is primarily embraced by foliage. Mueller Park is popular and used by mountain bikers, families, dog walkers, and trail runners as well as hikers. Elephant Rock has a bench perfectly situated for watching the sunset over the Great Salt Lake."

This is a great trail, definitely manageable for kids and dogs, but bring lots of water. It's a moderately steady climb (shaded and green) with a really pretty view at the top. Lots of folks love this trail, so you will see plenty of other hikers, mountain bikers, and runners. Kind of crowded but beautiful!
