Weekly Wednesday Hike: Dawson Butte -Douglas County Open Space 4.6 mi.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

We offer weekly morning hikes throughout the year. Take advantage of the great trails in and around Castle Rock and Douglas County. 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.

Dawson Butte is peaceful and inspiring. The open, flowy, curvey trail follows the natural contours of the land and takes people on adventures through forested areas and meadows.  This trail is popular year-round because it has a mix of shade and sun.
