HIKES

Castlewood Canyon, part 2

August 24


Rim Rock / Creek Bottom Trail Loop
Trailhead: West Entrance Trailhead (Castlewood Canyon State Park)
Distance: 4 miles (easy)


What's a better way to spend a lucky day off than hiking basically every trail in a nearby state park?? Castlewood Canyon is about 20 minutes away from our new apartment, so I've been itching to explore it as much as I can. With most of the trails under 4 miles, I figured I might as well do a few of them! My second hike of the day was on the west side of the park - which is more "rugged" in that it has gravel roads and pit toilets. It meant I only saw 3 people the entire hike!
