“Castle Rock!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

If you are ever in Castle Rock, be sure not to miss this local park. The crushed gravel path the base of Castle Rock is a easy walk. Once the the base, you have an awesome veiw of the Front Range. Top if off with a climb up and down the rock. The climb is not exactly easy and is not for little ones. However, once on top, you will not be disapponited for the view. Unparrelled view of the Front Range all the way south to Pikes Peak.

Enjoy!!!!

“Gorgeous View”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I have hiked at this park endless times. Once atop "the rock" the views are so nice. You really get a great look at the town of Castle Rock, and surrounding areas!

“Good, quick hike in Castle Rock!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

This is our go-to place for a quick hike on a beautiful weekend morning. It never feels crowded, it's a fun climb, and the views from the top are very pretty.
Although it's listed as a 'difficult' climb, there are always families with small children making the climb so it is do-able for most.
Enjoy!

You can enjoy a hike up the rock with views of the surrounding mountains and valley with little effort! This is a beautiful park that does not require a whole day to explore and makes for a perfect morning adventure.

“Greatest City Hike on the Front Range”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Just hiking up to the base of "The Rock" is a fun trip. Taking the extra little Class-3 climb to the top is sublime. The hike isn't long, and while it's uphill all the way, totally worth the view.
