Mueller State Park

Grouse Mountain Overlook

Close to the campground, this trail offers a quiet hike through a timbered forest. Take #17 Cheesman Trail to Trail #16. The trail leads to the top of Grouse Mountain, the highest point in the park (9,843 feet). Enjoy a spectacular view of Pikes Peak to the east and the Sangre de Cristo Range to the southwest. Keep in mind that this trail will be closed every year from June 1 through June 20 for elk calving season.
