Mueller Park is open year round. Day use hours are 5 am to 10 pm.

Description

The Ranger Ridge Trail can be accessed from the second parking lot in Mueller State Park, at the same location as the Aspen Trail (Trail 21) and the School Pond Trail (Trail 2).

The trail travels south on a relatively flat grade for .5 miles before reaching the southern boundary of the park. It then turns westward and then northward with short ups and downs, heading back to the parking lot.

At about mile .3, it meets the takeoff to the Stoner Mill Trail (Trail 23). At mile 1.4, it meets the takeoff to the Preacher's Hollow Trail (Trail 4).

Rode Rangers Ridge clockwise today up to Preachers Hollow. Before we took off I checked the park map at the Trail Head and it showed to only be foot trail but following the app, we headed out. It's a double track flat and gravel surface the whole way and looks to have been Forest Service roads in the past. There are steep descents and ascents that in some cases we walked up, check your brakes before you go. Scenery was beautiful with tons of trees and open spots to see miles towards Pike's Peak. When we got back to the trail head parking a friendly hiker mentioned the trails we rode on were only hiking trails and if we were caught biking them we'd get a ticket. We thanked them for the advice and promptly checked the State Park maps and indeed as of the map posted from 2016 they are designated as Foot, Horse, Bike. Here's the link we reviewed. cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/… Also should mention that on the brown marker signs at the start of the trail it mentioned no motorized traffic, no dogs, but no mention of bikes as not being allowed. Just thought I would share. Enjoy the ride! Aug 18, 2018
