The hike is okay. The 'castle' ruins are really neat!

Great hike. A little crowded on weekends but worth it.

Great scenic trail. Seems crowded on weekends.

Easy for kids and fun for the whole family!

This network of trails is great in this open space area. You have the ability to make what you want out of it! Some shorter hikes with no elevation or string some longer ones together for elevation change. Do not be fooled by the low reviews on the app, the trails are packed!!

Great trail with your kids! Nice and well maintained. Our 5 and 7.5 year old did not have any issues and want to come back.

Great workout with my pup. Uphill out & downhill back

Nice hike close town. Easy trails with great views. Ruins are pretty cool. Good sun and some shade along the way. Several trails you can add on or not to make the trail shorter or longer to your liking

Great family hike! Plenty of shade and not too challenging but a great work out!

Perfect solo hike - do in the evening and end by walking up the Meadow Trail. Stunning sunset views!

Go early, this trail is exposed and gets very hot, too hot for dogs midday.

Great hike, nice views, but saw two rattlesnakes (7/17) on our way down Turkey Trot. One was quite big and one was a bit smaller. Just be super careful because they’re really hard to see if they’re just off the trail.

Really enjoyed this hike. It was cool and foggy, but it was still lovely. Pretty easy hike if you’re in shape. The ruins are fascinating.

Great trail that gets your heart rate going and wonderful views. Went up the castle trail up to walkers dream trail and took turkey trot on the way down. Saw a deer on the way. Effort to views was ideal

Very well kept trails, easy trek before sunrise to top of Mt. Falcon with great views of Denver

Great morning hike. Good 8 mike hike! Great views, wild flowers and decent climb. Decently traveled today with a lot of mtn bikers and hikers.

Pretty empty trails even on a Saturday morning. Lot of exposure so bring plenty of water and lots of sunscreen. This route is up and down so no sustained climbing. No incredible vistas but pretty views throughout. Wildflowers and butterflies everywhere - very pleasant hike.

Great trail with access on the west and east ends. West end is a more gradual slope–perfect for kids. The east end has great views towards Morrison, Downtown Denver, and Red Rocks.
We hiked from the west end of the Castle trail out to the old ranch house and cornerstone of the attempted Summer Whitehouse. On the way back we added the Meadow and Tower trails to the south to form a loop.
If starting in the morning from the west, I would recommend the reverse: Meadow, Tower, then Castle. (Castle Trail is shaded whereas Meadow is not)
Good map in this app, but maps available to print by searching “Jeff Co Open Space Mount Falcon Park.”

Fun hike would do it again. Great addition to the rest of that area. Added over 5 miles to it and we were there about 5 hours.

Pretty good hike, it's fun to explore the whole area. Meandered through and went on other trails here and spend about 5 hours here. Moderate hiker.
Devil's Elbor was a nice addition.

I went on a Monday morning and not a lot of people! I will do this one again soon! Just be mindful of the private residence and drive slow on the road
