As the warmth of summer gives way to cooler nights, celebrate fall at Mueller State Park, as the forest turns golden. Typical weather in September at Mueller brings those famous Colorado blue-sky days. As those days become shorter, the trees start to change into their awesome display of color. Aspen trees make the hillsides glow with gold. Mueller is a favorite spot to see the show. Come on out to camp or hike and dive into the beauty of autumn in Colorado.
A full schedule of naturalist programs can help you to look, learn and enjoy the surroundings. Evening amphitheater programs will continue on weekends and guided hikes are available almost daily.
Special programs this month include hikes to go hear the elk bugling. And we’ll have fall challenge hikes. The Fall Challenge is an invitation to hike all the trails at Mueller, with a guide or on your own, about 60 miles, in one month. Everyone who meets the challenge will receive a certificate and a prize for the accomplishment.
A special event this month comes Saturday, Sept. 28, when we host “Mueller in Gold,” timed to coincide with the peak of fall color at Mueller. Visitors can celebrate the changes in the forest with several hikes where we explore the spectacular scenery. \
Mueller events are FREE; however, an $8 daily pass or $80 annual pass is required to enter the park. For more information, call the park at 719-687-2366.
