Castle Rock

Castle Rock Professional Review and Guide

"From a glance at a map, this trail looks deceptively uninteresting, but it has a lot to keep your interest. The analogy to a castle is well founded, and those with active imaginations will find themselves naming gates, turrets, and other structures while exploring the area. As a short loop, it provides a refreshing change from the innumerable out-and-backs typical of summits and other trails in the park.

The parking area is a small pulloff near the Minnowbrook Conference Center. The trail register is just up the road within sight of the sandy parking area. However, the trail does not begin until a little more than 0.3 mile down the road."
