Mueller Sstate Park Scenic View

​​​​​​​A popular watchable wildlife area, Mueller is home to abundant wildlife including elk, black bear, hawks, and mule deer.

Mueller State Park has over 5,000 acres of spring-fed meadows, forested ridges and massive rocks of Pikes Peak Granite with several ponds that dot the landscape.

The park supports a variety of plant-life ranging from native grasses and wildflowers to stands of spruce, fir, pine and aspen.  Along with the elk, mule deer and bears, many small mammals and birds share the park's habitat.

Visitors can enjoy year-round recreational opportunities including camping, picnicking, trail use, fishing and nature studies.  Winter activities include sledding, snowshoeing and cross country skiing.  

Every season is a photographers delight. 

 Mueller State Park welcomes leashed pets in campgrounds, picnic areas and on the paved roads, but not on the hiking trails or in the backcountry. By keeping pets off of the trails, we increase the chances of visitors seeing the various species of wildlife in the park and are better able to maintain this pristine Watchable Wildlife Area. To learn more, read Pets at Mueller State Park.

Come up today and enjoy Mueller State Park!

Start Your Adventure at the Visitor Center

The Visitor Center, located atop Big View Overlook, features a scenic panoramic overlook hidden below the shadow of Pikes Peak.  In the heart of Mueller State Park, this information area features indoor and outdoor exhibits emphasizing the park's natural habitats, wildlife and heritage. Visit the Watchable Wildlife Kiosk and learn about those who call Mueller home. At the Gazebo, hand painted panels of the surrounding mountains help you get your bearings before heading out on the Wapiti Nature Trail.

Three trailheads from the Visitor Center parking lot connect you to short family friendly or long connecting hikes. Don't forget to pick up a trail map before you head out!
