We completed this section of the park with our four and six year old. They really dug the 'castle ruins' and we saw a lot of wildlife. Even on a Sunday morning with the parking lots full and many families on the trail we still ended up with some quiet stretches where we were alone. The hardest part for our youngest was the climb to the fire tower, but he made it and the views from up there were amazing! We had a picnic at the Eagle Eye Shelter before we made our way back down.

Great trail, has diversity of difficulty and connects easily between easy to moderate. Saw some ruins of an old estate, two looking towers, and great views of red rocks, meadows, downtown and so much more.

Trail starts out easy and wide with plenty of opportunities to select other, more challenging options. Great views of Denver, Red Rocks Amphitheater and west to the mountains.
