An easy fall hike. Nice views at the out-and-back spurs. Take a photo of the trail map at the trailhead for ease of navigating. Colorado is so beautiful.

Beautiful area to hike with some really awesome views. It was easy to get sidetracked on other trails so if you're looking to do this exact trail you have to really follow the map! I got off track but the trail I ended up on was beautiful so I didn't try to get back to the outlook ridge loop. Mueller State Park is awesome and worth the $7 and not being able to bring my dog!

We only took the Lost Pond trail in early July It was short but a bit steep. Not great for young kids (5 and under). The pond was full of wildlife though- snakes, salamanders, and water bugs- fun for the kiddos.

Easy hike, well marked and maintained trails. Kids enjoyed it! Good views, quiet. Really enjoyed the narrower paths through the forest, definitely take the trail 7 bypass - less hilly and much prettier!

Love Mueller State Park as a recreational retreat. Wonderful for trail running challenges. Enjoyable scenery and nice peat trail ground covering.

Great trails, clean not alot of people. Easy hike for a family. Within the state park, 7$ to get in without a pass. will be back for sure.

Great trail, well marked. Enough elevation change to make it interesting but not a difficult hike at all. Great views and rocks to climb. Nice bathrooms and picnic tables at the trailhead. Several overlooks adjacent made for terrific photo ops!

Beautiful trail. We did the loop. It was a little steep on the return, but the loop is rated moderate.

Like all the trails in Mueller State Park, this one is well maintained and well marked. We only hiked Outlook Ridge to the first overlook, Raven Ridge. Our group ranged in age from early 50's to late 60's and we had no problem as this was a fairly easy hike. The overlook at Raven Ridge looking down at Brook Pond is very pretty.
