great local hike if you take the switchback path, located off the north west section of the sidewalk. Look for the "trail" sign and it splits away from the bike paths. Once up the butte the terrain is mainly flat. Single file natural pathway throughout.

Beautiful views!

Can't really call this a hike due to how short it is and I really wouldn't call it moderate either...more like easy. Great views and pretty flat once you get up to the top of the mesa. Would do this again for sure.

This is a great trail, with spectacular views from Pikes Peak to Wyoming. Nice, because it's so close to downtown Castle Rock. Great show Sunday morning, or even weeknight hike. This hike makes me leery of rattlesnakes, but haven't seen one in several years. Just keep your eyes to the ground. Also, if you want more mileage, just do the upper loop multiple times....views never get boring!

Beautiful scenery, nice for hiking dogs and great for intermediate mountain biking.
