Overview

Columbine Open Space is protected for its important wetlands along Plum Creek, pine forest and Gambel oak habitat. The trails are comprised of two loops that follow through the upper grasslands and shrublands. The old red barn and rock springhouse are on this property.

Trail Description

From DougCO:

Trail Rating: Easy, with a short climb on the south loop.

Trail Length: Approximately 1.5 miles.

Trail Surface: Crushed concrete.


Users: Multi-use: horses, mountain bikes and hiking; sorry, no dogs allowed due to wildlife protection.


This is a very easy trail. I suppose you could do laps to get miles. A good place to bring beginners and kids. There are no technical obstacles at all.

Getting There

Drive south of Castle Rock along the I-25 east Frontage Road for 6.5 miles. It may also be accessed from the Tomah Road exit by driving 1.5 miles north along the Frontage Road on the east side of I-25.

When to Bike

Almost any time of year. This park gets very little use.

Links & Other info

Again, no dogs allowed.
