Mueller is probably Bountiful's most popular hiking/biking/trail running/equestrian trail. During the summer this trail sees a lot of traffic. If you're into early morning or nighttime rides there's a good chance you won't see many people but any given Saturday or weekday afternoon there will be a lot of folks on the trail. The ride is pretty much hardpack with a few rocky/root sections. Watch out on the bridges because they can be slick. Also, watch your speed on the way down especially on corners. Mind your trail manners and help keep Mueller fun and safe for all outdoor enthusiasts.

Most people ride to Elephant Rock (labeled "Big Rock" on the map) and few venture beyond it. This being said, if you want to ride all the way to Rudy's Flat you're in for a bit more of a secluded ride. Once you're at Rudy's you have the choice to go back down Mueller or tackle North Canyon. North Canyon has even less people on it on a regular basis.

      Snow free up to the north facing bridge past the rock. I saw a biker walking it from Rudy’s. There is snow 1/8 mile from Rudy’s too. Give it...

      Only 2 places requiring dismount to Rudy’s.

      New snow has helped the icy spots. Good to go to the rock.

       This is a beginner, green trail. It's a nice pedal up and probably 85% shaded. It's too easy for noobs to let their speed get out of hand on the descent. It's void of any tech features.

       the track for this is weird.. maybe should be split at Rudy's Flat. No idea what that extra spur is, and absolutely no rides in the ridelog due to this

       great morning ride. Mostly shaded but solid climb most the way up. Few short spots with rock gardens and rooted in a climb had to walk these short spots. Great view at elephant rock. Nice for snack and water then return. Next time may go all the way thru north canyon. Way back watch the speed sharp turns exposed ledges and loose dirt/gravel. Lots of hikers and other bikers. I agree this is a blue trail and I worked hard at my late beginner level on the climb and had fun on the way down.

       The Forest Service has re-opened this trail as a wildfire had forced them to close it for our safety. All trails in the area are open now.

       Mueller is an amazing trail, but Davis County needs to start building more. It's WAY too busy, especially on weekends and holidays.

       Great for a OneWheel! Entire trail to Elephant Rock and back is doable, but a few rocky portions will be slow or you may need to bail. The berms are great. You definitely need to be careful with speed, as it's a very used public trail for biking, hiking, and running. Be sure to let the cyclists pass in front of you on the way down, they can handle the rocky sections faster.

       Great hiking trail or easy trail for beginners or on a gravel/cross bike. Be very cautious on the way down. Hard to see around corners and lots of families out hiking.

       Beautiful trail that is technically open to dirt bikes and ebikes, but if you take anything with a motor be prepared for some nasty looks and even vocal hikers. I took my Sur Ron and was cruising at slower speeds but still got an earful from some lady. Everyone wants the trail to themselves but we can all share.

       Awesome trail but be careful on the way down. If you go past elephant rock there tends to be less hikers

       Great trail! People really need to learn trail etiquette on this one, all of us bikers need to be yielding to hikers and uphill traffic. Slow down on the downhill and use a bell.
