The Mehliskopf is located above the Schwarzwaldhochstraße, which passes the mountain to the west, between Sand in the north (turnoff to Herrenwies and to the Schwarzenbachtalsperre) and ∆ in the southwest (turnoff to Forbach-Hundsbach). Its summit is located in the district of the town of Bühl, about 9 km to the west-northwest in the district of Rastatt. On the northern flank of the mountain there is a ski slope with lifts and a year-round bobsleigh run. In addition, a climbing garden and an adventure playground have been set up. Another ski slope with the Hundseck Nord lift is located on the south-western slope of the mountain. Its valley station is located on the Black Forest High Road near Hundseck.
