"A ride for climbers—or those who aspire to be climbers. This is a well-known route that features a long, steady ascent on a wide but moderately technical trail. At the top of the big hill, riders are rewarded with a unique historical site and, for those with a little extra energy, a nice single-track loop."
--Robert Hurst, Best Bike Rides Denver and Boulder (Falcon Guides).
"This nice hike features spectacular views of Red Rocks, the Continental Divide, and the plains. Expect to see wildlife, wildflowers, cacti, beautiful yuccas, and great views to the north, east, and west."
--Bob D Antonio, Hiking Colorado's Front Range (Falcon Guides).
"Mount Falcon Open Space Park is an easily accessible hike from Denver that includes a blood-pumping climb through open meadows, ponderosa pine trees, and seasonal wildflowers. This trail covers most of the 11.1 miles of trails in Mount Falcon. Castle Trail leads from the plains to the foothills on a narrow road that once carried Stanley Steamer automobiles."
