  • One of our favorite places to hike in the area. If you choose to do the 8 mile loop, plenty of great views and an interesting stop at the old Walker Mansion. Easy trails, restrooms at start but try an...  more »
  • Love to do this hike year round to get in shape for backpacking and more length hikes. We usually use east side of the trail. It's great because there is a trail no mountain bikes are allowed on. We u...  more »
  • This is a lovely 8 mile hike. I have lived in Golden most of my life, hike a lot, and had never been here until I tripped over it in my AllTrails app (check it out that app!). The remains of a castle ...  more »

  • Beautiful hike. My wife and I, along with our pup, parked in the East Trailhead lot, and we took the Castle Trail. On the return route, we took Turkey Trot. In all, pretty easy hike if you hike regularly. We saw quite a few people (of all ages) for a weekday, many folks with dogs, and some folks who were trail running. I’ll go again.
  • Fun place close to red rocks to walk around and enjoy the view and outdoors. It gets busy on nice days so it’s best to go early if you like more nature and less people. If you are less acclimated with hiking there are lots of less strenuous walks. Great for family and dogs and views.
  • Awesome trails to run on. Pretty rocky in some areas. Lots of trail options to get as much distance/time/elevation gain as you'd like.
  • Hikers and trail runners should be aware that mountain bike traffic can be extremely heavy on the Castle Trail. Use the hikers-only Turkey Trot Trail to avoid bikers on the lower half of the Castle Trail if this concerns you. Go during the week if possible, or before 9am on summer weekends to get a good parking spot. The Castle Trail is a heavily-trafficked, multi-use single-track trail that provides a strenuous workout for hikers, runners, and mountain bikers. When starting from the east side trailhead you'll gain roughly 1,600' over 3 miles between the parking lot and the castle ruins, and another 100 feet between the castle ruins and the west side parking lot. You can combine the Castle trail with the Meadow and Tower trails for a roughly 8-mile loop with over 2000' of vertical gain.
  • Enjoyed every minute of our 5 mile hike. Beautiful views and scenery.
