Great trail that gets your heart rate going and wonderful views. Went up the castle trail up to walkers dream trail and took turkey trot on the way down. Saw a deer on the way. Effort to views was ideal

Very well kept trails, easy trek before sunrise to top of Mt. Falcon with great views of Denver

Great morning hike. Good 8 mike hike! Great views, wild flowers and decent climb. Decently traveled today with a lot of mtn bikers and hikers.

Great trail with access on the west and east ends. West end is a more gradual slope–perfect for kids. The east end has great views towards Morrison, Downtown Denver, and Red Rocks.
We hiked from the west end of the Castle trail out to the old ranch house and cornerstone of the attempted Summer Whitehouse. On the way back we added the Meadow and Tower trails to the south to form a loop.
If starting in the morning from the west, I would recommend the reverse: Meadow, Tower, then Castle. (Castle Trail is shaded whereas Meadow is not)
Good map in this app, but maps available to print by searching “Jeff Co Open Space Mount Falcon Park.”

Pretty good hike, it's fun to explore the whole area. Meandered through and went on other trails here and spend about 5 hours here. Moderate hiker.
Devil's Elbor was a nice addition.

After reading reviews my daughter and I decided to tackle this hike. We started up Turkey Trot which then connected to Castle trail to go to Walkers Dream and then down and to the right for the ruins. Whoever put this as moderate is plum crazy. The hiked kicked our butts!! Highly suggest taking Turkey Trot to connect to Castle trail, it is definitely more covered than doing the Castle Trail to start..what also no one seems to mention is the extensive up hill switch backs, it was a struggle. Not recommending for beginners.

Wide trail from the parking lot- good for all ages. Rolling path. Nice views from the castle. Interesting info signs. Trails are well marked.
Was there by 8:30 and top lot was full. Saw a couple deer.

Fun easy dog friendly hike.

Hot! Good incline really pretty views, lots of butterflies. Clean bathrooms. There’s a nice incline on the way up and we did the turkey trot loop so the decline was easy. It took about 90 minutes we did stop for the views

I do this trail weekly (if I’m not traveling). Nice in the early morning or late evening. Good glimpses of wildlife but a great place to decompress and enjoy the outdoors.


nice easy loop. went on the 4 July. wasn't as busy as expected. took my three boys under 7 and my 10 year old nephew.

keep in mind this trail and it's proximity to civilization. one of the only "closer" trails I do to Denver. with that said if you want a more enjoyable experience get there early

Great park where you can pick and choose trails, difficulty, and length. No shade coverage anywhere so very hot and exposed.

nice easy hike with tons of nature and exploring opportunities!

Typically a busy place on the weekends, but enjoyed less crowds on a late Friday afternoon. This one is an ass kicker... steady incline most of the way up, so it's a good leg workout! Plenty of other trails to connect to, to make a longer hike if you want. Seen a turkey dart across the trail, a deer & a rattlesnake on this day, so watch your step! Lots of places to stop & rest or just take in the scenery & views.

A beauty! We jumped onto Dakota Ridge and made a nice loop!

Fun short hike with the kids. Great views!

Not a hard trail to tackle but there’s zero cover around most of the res. It got hot quick today and breaks were necessary but again, no cover in that area. The creek by the trail was awesome and my dog loved it, and these areas are shaded as well. My first time on this trail and next time I would take the opposite way around in order to get the no cover area around the res out of the way. Also was pleased with access to bathrooms.

Great leg workout mostly uphill. A lot of bikers but courteous on the path. Beware no shade, bring lots of water. No resting spots for breaks. Maps are poorly marked but we enjoyed the run!

Love this hike! I come here often when I can't drive out too far, but need my nature fix. A beautiful place, with tons of scenery to photograph.

This ridge walk should definitely be rated ‘Easy’ rather than Moderate. Completed it in under 2 hours... great views and a mostly flat, well-maintained trail. Would be good for trail running.

Good trail, several options of trails. Went early evening And was busy but still fun. We could see the Red Rock Amphitheater in the distance and hear the concert. Close to Morrison to eat after! We will be back to try alternate route! We felt this was easy but the distance is what made it moderate. We did the turkey trot, less bikers on this trail.

Place is awesome! Perfect spot for a group of 10 out here for a bachelor party, everyone enjoyed it. The trail doesn’t take long and isn’t too difficult, and it’s beautiful country to experience! Thank you to all my best bros for making the trip out here! I love all y’all!

Super chill and mellow trail. Bring some water as the sun can dry you our pretty quick. Take advantage of the water at the top of the 'mountain' and also near the golf course. They say it is only for golfers, but do it anyway--you deserve it.

Close to town, yet wilderness!! Nice hike!

Casual walk in a beautiful setting. Can’t go wrong for an easy stroll. Very kid friendly. Spotted deer and foxes several times out here.

Really nice easy walk around the rocks. No shade so bring a hat or umbrella.

Lovely trail with a few options to go harder or stay easy. Definitely the on the Easy side of Moderate. Saw lots of wildlife (lots of birds, a few deer).
