Nice hike that’s really easy to follow to the Walter home ruins. Pretty steady incline the entire way. I started at 830 am on Sunday and by the time I got back around 12 the parking lot was pretty full and starting to get pretty crowded with bikes and dogs. I brought my lab, just be sure to bring a little extra water for you and your dog due to the steady uphill climb

Awesome hike close to Denver. As others have mentioned, there are many options how to get up and down. We took one way up and another down in November, and there was no snow and no issues. Do not stop early! Make sure you get all the way to the remnants of the summer White House - that’s where the views are spectacular! Plus, you get to imagine what may have been with the base of the home in place. Loved it and will definitely go back!

Started with Turkey Trot trail. Nice view on the west / north side of the mountain. Castle trail keeps east and views are mostly of Denver / the city.
Steady climb up the 3 miles of Castle Trail. Work up a good sweat to the top by the Summer White House. Nice views and photo opportunities.
