http://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/Parks/Mueller/ This is one of my favorite areas to go and work out the bugs in the spring! Nice Wide trails, great Gaiting for my Walker and Foxtrotters, nothing too technical, just good and long. You can ride a little or a lot! Very scenic, high altitude, be aware of this for us old folk! Horses seem to do fine! Two horse camping spots at the horse parking trailhead, toilet, horse water and a handy dandy little scoop shovel for your poop! Pick it up! LOL Killer views of Pikes Peak to the East and endless sweeping views over the treetops to the Western ranges....the Collegiates, Sangre De Cristos and bluebird skies!
