Looking for fun things to do in Castle Rock? Check out these great outdoor adventures.

Even though Castle Rock, CO, is located off Interstate 25 and less than an hour from downtown Denver, it offers plenty of ways to explore the outdoors.

After all, that’s why so many people flock to Colorado – the ability to enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of one of the most scenic states in the country.

Castle Rock’s distinct advantage is that you don’t need to drive for hours to hike, mountain bike or even zipline. Being active is a part of everyday life.

Ty Seufer is a Colorado native who owns The EDGE Ziplines & Adventures in Castle Rock as well as Cañon City whitewater rafting outfit Royal Gorge Rafting. As a self-described adrenaline junkie and outdoorsman, Seufer highlights his favorite outdoor things to do in Castle Rock.

“It’s super gorgeous up there – you can see everything from Pikes Peak all the way to Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s truly amazing.”

Explore Rock Park

Castle Rock, the town’s namesake butte, has an easy 1.4-mile loop that leads hikers to the base of the rock. Though you can’t climb the actual remaining 40-ish feet of the butte itself, the view at the top of the trail is more than satisfying.

“It’s super gorgeous up there – you can see everything from Pikes Peak all the way to Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s truly amazing,” Seufer says.

Since it’s the city’s main landmark, hiking the trail to the top is a must-do activity for every newcomer and longtime local alike.

Climb Challenge Hill

Challenge Hill – locally referred to as “The Incline” – is located at Philip S. Miller Park, a hub of Castle Rock activity. The incline offers a steep, roughly 200-foot elevation gain with unforgettable panoramic views at the summit.

Across the street from Challenge Hill, the park is also home to FitGround, an outdoor fitness area with body-weight and free-form tools for performing resistance exercises.

“There are multiple different stations for adults to get in shape – everything from a pull up bar to a push up bar to ropes. It’s like a well-built mini outdoor gym, where people can do all sorts of cool exercises,” Seufer says.

Traverse the Trails

With the abundance of paved or single-track gravel trails in Castle Rock, finding a place to ride is easy to do. Rhyolite Regional Park is a 55-acre recreation area that features a bike park, with miles of challenging bike-only trails, multiuse trails and a 2-mile cyclocross course.

Ridgeline Open Space has 370 protected acres designated for public use, including more than 13 miles of paved and unpaved multiuse trails with several short and long loop single-track rides. Philip S. Miller Park also features an 8-mile network of single-track trails divided into four different but interconnected loops.

“There are just endless miles of single-track, off-road style mountain biking trails, and they connect everything from Philip S. Miller Park to downtown, up and down Plum Creek and over to Festival Park,” Seufer says.

Where to Live Now

Why Veterans Choose to Move to Castle Rock, CO

Outstanding resources and support make this Colorado city a prime landing spot.

Take a Hike or Make a Splash

Like mountain biking, hiking is easy to access in Castle Rock. While there are miles of multiuse trails throughout town, another local resource is Castlewood Canyon State Park. Located just 10 minutes from town, it offers numerous trails, a canyon, waterfalls and the remains of a dam.

Closer to town, the Rueter-Hess Reservoir has an incline challenge plus a reservoir open seasonally for paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing.

Venture Through the Sky

Those in Castle Rock in search of an adrenaline rush don’t have to go far. The EDGE Ziplines & Adventures has 10 ziplines that together stretch more than 2 miles and 110 feet above Philip S. Miller Park, offering stellar panoramic views zipping through the air.

Sky Trek is an aerial trekking course with three levels and 110 challenge elements that’s like a jungle gym for all ages. The Adventure Tower offers a 50-foot climbing wall to summit and rappel off, and the Ninja Course offers six challenges (featured on the American Ninja Warrior reality show).

“The great thing is we have all these different challenges that are absolutely awesome for kids and adults alike to get outside and just have a really, really good time,” Seufer says. “Everybody in the town of Castle Rock is so lucky to have this group of people that are so passionate about building amazing parks everyone can enjoy.”

Discover Endless Possibilities

When it came time to update and renovate the 30-year-old Butterfield Crossing Park, Castle Rock’s Parks and Recreation Department decided to do something that had never been done before: Instead of replacing the playground, parks officials partnered with the Castle Rock Parks and Trails Foundation to design an inclusive playground for children of all abilities.

Possibilities Playground opened in summer 2023, adding to the roster of parks throughout the city.

“When the Parks and Rec Department did a survey, about 65% of residents said they wanted an inclusive playground,” says Marne Hansen, executive director of the Castle Rock Parks and Trails Foundation. “It was out of budget for municipal funds, so we partnered with them and have done fundraising of almost $1.3 million in the community to make it happen – the town got really involved.”

The new playground will serve families not only in Castle Rock but surrounding communities in need of a place where their children can play together, whether they have a disability or not, enhancing the community’s overall quality of life. Among the new play features are a sensory wall with tactile elements, a roller table, numerous swings, a we-go-round and musical instruments.

“It’s really neat that everyone will be included, and this will be right in our backyard,” Hansen says. “I think one thing that gets missed in this story, too, is for families whose kids don’t have disabilities to be able to be at the playground with kids who are different than them – the growth in your mind of being able to play side by side with people who are different than them is pretty impressive.”

Castlerock Golf Club has been confirmed as co-host venue for the 2023 ISPS HANDA World Invitational presented by AVIV Clinics.

The event will once again return to Northern Ireland later this year and Castlerock will join Galgorm Castle Golf Club in bringing together some of the best players in the men’s and women’s game. The DP World Tour tournament and co-sanctioned LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour tournament will be played concurrently over the two courses from August 17-20.

The addition of Castlerock, located in Co. Londonderry, brings a unique angle to the ISPS HANDA World Invitational, as players will be tasked with tackling a links layout in addition to Galgorm Castle’s parkland course.

Castlerock Golf Club, founded in 1901, is a classic links course set amid towering dunes. The original course comprised nine holes and was laid out on the western part of the present course. Additional land was leased in 1908 and Ben Sayers was commissioned to design an 18-hole layout.

Every player will play one round at each venue over the first two days, before all the action takes place at Galgorm Castle once the cut falls after 36 holes.

Andrew Snoddy, Tournament Director of the ISPS HANDA World Invitational, said: “We are delighted to welcome Castlerock Golf Club to the ISPS HANDA World Invitational.

“It is a stunning links venue and I am excited by the added dimension it brings to the event. It will test every part of the players’ games and having two courses offering a mix of links and parkland challenges further enhances the ISPS HANDA World Invitational’s quest for innovation.”

Bert Mackay, General Manager of Castlerock Golf Club, said: “We have completed a large amount of work on the course over the past number of years so we are incredibly excited to seeing it being put to the test by some of the world’s best in this great co-sanctioned event.

“Northern Ireland is building a great reputation for putting on incredible golf events and this one will be no different.”

Christina Kim, three-time LPGA Tour winner, said: “Castlerock is one of my favourite courses in Northern Ireland. It is rugged with its beauty, demanding and constantly makes you think. You need to be smart about how you challenge the course and have faith in your abilities. And that’s only part of the reason Castlerock is such a spectacular course. It brings out the best in a player if you allow it to.”

In 2022, Scotland’s Ewen Ferguson picked up his second DP World Tour title in wire-to-wire fashion, while Sweden’s Maja Stark fired a stunning closing round of 63 to win the women’s competition by five strokes.

Colorado Springs and El Paso County residents should prepare for "very strong and damaging" wind gusts until sunset on Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

The strongest gusts are expected to end early Friday morning around 7 a.m., the NWS said, but strong winds are expected to last through the day. Gusts of 60-80 mph and up to 100 mph in localized areas are most likely along the Interstate 25 corridor, along the western border of the county and in the northeast stretch of the county from Black Forest to Ramah.

Travel could be "very dangerous" in some areas, particularly west of the Interstate 25 corridor and along the western border of El Paso County, the NWS said. “High profile vehicles,” including box trucks, semi-trucks, RVs and some pickups and SUVs, risk being “blown off the road” on the I-25 corridor south of Pueblo, officials said.

Trucks are reportedly backed up near Castle Rock as the Colorado Department of Transportation has closed the left lane of I-25 southbound between Exit 181 (two miles south of Castle Rock) and CO-105 near Woodmoor due to safety concerns.

Residents should prepare for the possibility of blown-down trees and power lines, according to a release from the Pikes Peak Regional Office of Emergency Management.

If a downed tree is in the public right of way, residents can call 719-520-6460 or visit the Citizen Connect website to report it.

“Widespread power outages may occur,” the release stated.

Motorists are advised to avoid travel and stay indoors if possible. If staying home is not an option, drivers are cautioned to maintain a firm, two-handed grip on the steering wheel, be alert for abrupt changes in wind direction and speed, and be on the lookout for flying debris.

Power outages could include traffic lights, according to emergency management personnel.

“Motorists should treat all darkened intersections as a four-way stop,” officials said in the release.

The regional emergency agency advises residents to secure their outdoor furniture and holiday decorations, and avoid being in forested areas or near trees and branches.

A change is in store Monday for weather around Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region.

Colorado Springs residents can expect a slight chance of showers between 11 a.m. and noon, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

Active weather returns today. Storms are expected across southern CO as a storm system approaches the area. Some of these storms may be strong/severe during the afternoon and evening.
