Castlewood Canyon State Park Loops
This beautiful figure 8 hike drops down to Cherry Creek and the remains of the Castlewood Dam, which provided water for irrigation and recreation for over forty years. The dam broke in 1933, leaving tattered remains and scars in the canyon downstream. You’ll walk past big hunks of Castle Rock Conglomerate, full of imbedded rocks and pebbles. Watch for birds of prey like turkey vultures and various hawks while you amble through four ecosystems in this canyon on the plains.
