Wanted a nice trail to do with our 4 month old son and we found it. Trails wide enough for a fixed three wheel stroller with rugged wheels. Nice views and meadows to stroll through...literally.

This trail is inside Mueller State Park and unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the backcountry trails! :-( Bummer!

We hiked the 1.5 mile of this trail and back so my comments only apply to that portion. This was an easy, wide, well maintained and well marked trail. There are several options along the way to take other trails in the park that will loop back to the trailhead. It is mostly forest with a few mountain and valley views. Horses are allowed. We hiked on a weekday around 7:00am and did not see anyone else. We also did not encounter any wildlife except for birds.
