    Yeah I still see an occasional moto up there but the crowds of hikers and bikers have grown so large that you have to hit it early to really appreciate the downhill. My favorite is a good old night ride. I didn't know BEECH infiltrated mtbr too!

    LOL just for the spam!

    Yeah we actually did see a moto heading down as we were climbing up. He had a girl on back, and didn't seem to understand that motos yield to mtn bikers. I "politely" yelled that to him, I had to yell to elevate my voice over the running motor.

    Don't start a hate thread about motos though, they were a huge part in creating that trail.

    Is Mueller just an out and back trail? And how steep are the climbs? I just want to see if I can take my 130 pounds of bike and gear up it.

    Either. If you do the loop you have to ride pavement. I'm not into that so I do the out and back. It's 6.5 mile uphill the WHOLE way so you get a long coast back down. Great trail. There's a fork at about 3 mile that you turn right at. Other than that, just stay on the trail and you can't get lost. You'll know you're at the top when you come to a meadow with some campfire pits and a small figure 8 trail. Also, it's the first place that you're no longer climbing.

    Climbs are steep at the beginning but level out shortly after. Honestly this trail (at least from the beginning to Elephant Rock, which is halfway) is kind of boring on a capable or plush bike. From the rock Rudy's (top half) has more tech to play around with, but the bottom half is funner on a hardtail IMO.
    All I know is that I don't know nothin'... and that's fine.

    Hit it right on the head, it is way better past the rock due to more roots, all the people on the trail pretty much limit the 6.5 mile descent to letting it hang out on the straights and to dodge hikers otherwise.

    I agree. I rode my enduro up and it was way too much. You could ride a CX up to the rock. After that its a lot more single trackish and fun. lower section desent is fun if you totally rip down it, just dont go on the weekends where u will mow down the family with 10 kids running around with 4 un-leashed dogs.

    Dont go on the weekends. FAR FAR FAR too many people, and these people arent hikers, they are idiots.
