Love these 200 steps! Kids love it too, and it gets easier every time. Pretty 360 view at the top and cat-track trail to take down if you don't feel like going down the stairs.

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.

Here is the link to the full trail system at miller park. AllTrails does not have the listing for the Purple and Gold trail.

If you start directly across from the Core Plaza and stay on the outer loop until you meetup with the Purple loop, then run Purple, Gold, Green and Red (red is flat and easy). The entire run will provide a decent, not too difficult workout. Finish it off with an accent up Challenge hill. Also on the Northeast edge of the Gold trail you can take the pedestrian bridge across to "Ridgeline Open Space" trails (see AllTrails listing). After your run dip your head in the fountains and lay in the grass and relax a while.

Ran the loop today with the addition of the M to N loop on the far East side. Going clockwise, it's a gnarly little hill coming back up. Also, if your looking far a longer run at the bottom of the M to N loop there is a pedestrian bridge that connects to the Phillip S Miller park trails. There is a trail race " Castle Rock Trail Festival" that will include this trail - Oct 7. Good trail for training and easy to get to.

it's a sidewalk in the middle of a suburb with dirt trails that lead to a highschool and a waste management facility.

Just picturesque So much variety of terrain.

narrow trails but nice. lizards and wild turkies.

not crowded but not much of a challenge, shrubs and sparse views.
