Rock Park

Rock Park is a nice community park that the entire family is able to enjoy. Jogging down the trail is a family favorite. The views from the top are great, and also a nice place to watch the sunset.

This mall has done a lot in the last couple of years to upgrade and become competitive with other similar malls. We really enjoyed the improvements and the special decorations provided to celebrate the holidays. We shopped at our favorites, the kitchen store, Columbia, North Face... good restaurants in the vicinity, too. Definitely a great place to go when you have family in town and need something for everyone!

Hidden Mesa Open Space & Trail

Reviewed By BradRph

We were introduced to this public space as a Boy Scout activity. We've been back a couple of times since with the whole family. Access is easy from Parker Road, or from the parking area on back side of the Mesa. Views are breathtaking, especially at sunset. The trail is pretty easy throughout. We also enjoy geocaching and there were quite a few caches to find along the hike.

Mini Incline

Reviewed By RJS53 - Highlands Ranch, Colorado

The Castle Rock Mini Incline provides a nice view of the town of Castle Rock and surrounding area and the Front Range mountains. It is a moderately strenuous climb, but the 200 steps are well maintained and provide a workout for those who want to 'push' or do the incline more than once. Many locals use this as part of their aerobic workout program. The park and zip line are very nice also.

Gateway Mesa Open Space Park

Reviewed By Jack W - New Mexico

This is a very accessible trail for hikers/walkers of all abilities. The loop trail is relatively flat and goes through some rock outcrop areas as well as grasslands with (currently) a beautiful array of wildflowers! There is also a more strenuous trek (10 miles) for those seeking that kind of adventure. There are amazing views as you reach the cliff/overlook area--and lots of interesting geology as Castlewood Canyon is quite close. My only hesitation in recommending is that it will become crowded with hikers. It is usually relatively quiet with 5-6 cars on average in the parking lot! This is a beautiful spot!
