Castlewood Canyon Trail can be as long as 7 miles full loop. It’s beautiful and good hike in Autumn to
Springtime. Summer can be hot and muggy.

This hike was way prettier than I had anticipated! It is short but the ruins are great for photo ops and keep the trail interesting. I went mid/late September and it was very green and there were a lot of wildflowers. The leaves were just starting to change color. There is also a small stream. Wish I could have hung out longer to explore some of the other trails. There were also deer nearby.

Beautiful hike. We started at 7am and made our way around the canyon. A lot see on this hike: a babbling stream with small waterfall, an old broke dam, a giant clear field, rock rim and shade in the tree areas. We must have veered off the loop trail because we hiked 5 miles total. Pet and kid friendly. Took about 2 hours as we leisurely took the hike. Highly suggest this location.

This is an easy hike for young children, but not boring or lacking in anything. You get some fun elevations, time crossing or hiking along a beautiful creek, incredible views of cliffs, rocks, vegetation, birds, insects, and meadows. The route is very well marked, and many other trails connect to it for other options, but clear signage prevents any chance of getting lost.

If you are looking for a relaxing walk that meanders by a creek, this trail would be perfect. The hike is easy going. Plenty of wild flowers as well as few birds of prey.
