Hiked this trail from Morrison up. The castle is a wonderful history lesson in its self. Lots of people hiking. Flowers in bloom.

Ran this trail training for a mountain race. Steep in spots but the views are worth it. Keep your eyes and ears open for mountain bikers and wildlife.

Love to do this hike year round to get in shape for backpacking and more length hikes. We usually use east side of the trail. It's great because there is a trail no mountain bikes are allowed on. We usually go early in the morning...More

While it is an eclectic neighborhood you drive through to park, the park itself is anything but. Easy pathway to the ruins, and we definitely learned a lot about the Walker family and their role in developing Jeffco open spaces!
