“A loop around Never Never Pond in south Mueller State Park.”
— Allen Tanner
Mueller Park is open year round. Day use hours are 5 am to 10 pm.
The beginning of Preacher's Hollow Trail begins at the second parking lot in Mueller State Park. It descends .3 miles quickly along doubletrack to Never Never Pond. The trail can be wet and muddy in the spring and early summer.
At mile .8, it turns back northward with a steep (10-15% grade) and steady climb.
At mile 1.0, the trail meets the Rock Pond Trail (Trail 5)
which turns southwestward towards Rock Pond. Turn northward to complete the loop back to the Visitor Center parking lot.
