Gorgeous Hidden Hiking Trail by Glendale Farms Dog Park
Tucked right between Ridgegate and Castle Pines is Glendale Farms Open Space. The area is used not only as a 17-acre off-leash dog park, but there’s a beautiful 1.8-mile hiking trail. Many tend to disregard the trail since it is somewhat hidden and new to the Castle Rock community.
If you drive down Interstate 25, you’ll find the park right by Park Meadows Shopping Center. When you pull into the lot it is usually filled with cars and dogs, but if you look to the far end of the parking area there is the beginning of the trail! Along the hike, you may see old pieces of history such as an old home or outhouse.
Castle Rock has plenty of outdoor activities for you and your family. Hiking is one of the favorites among the locals! Find this trail next time you plan a short hike, perhaps this weekend. Follow the directions below to find this hidden gem of a hiking path:
