Fun Climb

This is a fun climb for great views! Bring lots of water and use your sunscreen. Its a somewhat tough climb, but anyone in good shape should be able to do it..

Trail is well defined, not a long hike but is challenging at times. Parking lot fills up sometimes so parking along the street is better and it adds some more hiking too.

Rock Park was more fun than expected. The hike was not overly tough but was challenging enough to provide a good experience. We did not find a way to the top except by climbing up some rocky areas. If you are in Castle Rock this park is a must.

It's a nice park, kept pretty natural, with lots of good views of the rock formations, though it's close to the highway, so that may be a deterrent But it's clean and well maintained

Climbed here with my aunt and uncle who live here. It is a short, great hike that has a great view of the town and Pike's Peak.

Nice smooth trail with a great view. The trail does not take you to the very top of the rock - although there always seems to be people up there....

Although admittedly the view is slightly ruined by the sight and sound of the I-25, the walk to top (which actually is very gradual and accessible even to small children) is still worth doing. The Rock from a distance looks like a castle (hence the name of the town) but up close is just a rock and is sufficiently unstable... More

Me and my friends loved to climb the Rock! It is a nice hike up there and not just something for adults and teens but also something for the little ones!

The small parking lot was full, so we drove to side street where we found a different entrance to the park’s path. (I was glad I’d previously driven around the area to check it out before our friends from out of town came for a visit). The path to the top of the hill is rated difficult, and it was... More

As far as I could tell there are only 2 trails. Very cool view of castle rock. Good workout. Can climb all the way up.
