Castle Rock trail begins 1.1 miles east of the dam on Hwy 18.

Pretty steep but great hike. Mostly in the shade and very clean. Definitely worth seeing the view from the top.

Not too hard, not to easy. Wonderful views, perfect for the dog as well

Nice little trail. A bit steep going up but not impossible. Dogs loved it too!

This is a nice hike with scenic views of the lake, surrounding forest, and boulders. Short and relatively steep, especially in the beginning. This hike gets very busy at peak hours.
