The Mule Creek Trail is a 7 mile out-and-back that follows along Trout Creek and Mule Creek. It begins off of Forest Service Road 75, just off of Highway 67. Look for a trail marker that designates allowed uses at the trailhead.
The singletrack winds through aspen and pines. Within the first mile, there are several rocky sections where you'll have to watch your footing. The trail then climbs steadily without sustained steep sections; however roots, rocky features and several river crossings keep the run interesting.
Near the end of the trail, it passes a cabin, and joins into the 717 system. As mapped out here, the trail ends at trail 717A. From here you can turn back around and retrace your steps or head further into the 717 trail system.
