Day Hikes

We offer weekly morning hikes throughout the year. Take advantage of the great trails in and around Castle Rock and Douglas County. We will also hike to spots in Conifer and Palmer Lake, just about anything within about a one hour drive. Most of these hikes are designated as easy, and are 2.5-4 miles long with not much elevation gain. Moderate hikes may have some steep hills and will be 3.5-8 miles long.
