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 ThereDrive 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 BikeAlmost any time of year. This park gets very little use.
