Event Notes:

This hike will last about 4 hours including a lunch break. The pace will be moderate to slightly fast so this hike isn't recommended for slower hikers. What few hills and inclines there are are gentle in angle. DO NOT park at the staging area on the right near the end of Castle Rock Rd. Continue on the road curving in an s shape past the horse stables and over the small rise until you can't drive any farther. This is the entrance to Castle Rock recreation area.
