    Castle Rock History Museum

    This small but interesting museum is located in Castle Rock's old Denver and Rio Grand Railway Depot. The Depot was built in 1875 of native rhyolite stone, from nearby O'Brein Quarry. The museum highlights both local and railroad history, including early agriculture and industry in the Castle Rock area.

    Even without the exhibits, the depot itself is worth taking a look, and we recommend you do so if you are ever in Castle Rock on a Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Those are the only days the museum is open, from Noon - 5:00 p.m.

    Can you think of anything you can take your children to do anymore that will only cost you a penny? If you go to King Soopers right off I-25 at Meadows/Founders exit in Castle Rock, you can get a free cookie and ride the electronic pony.

  • Climb the Rock

    The most obvious landmark in town can be scaled with relative ease. You can park at the base and follow the trail up to the base of this butte. There are a couple well traveled routes up the 40 foot rock wall to the top. The views are impressive. No safety cables or fences so be careful - not for the feint of heart. Great for young adults. Be smart (sober), not stupid and we'll all be able to continue enjoying this unpromoted activity.

    Castle Pines (where the international golf tournament happens at the end of every summer) has a fairly new shopping area with a wine tasting on the second Wednesday of very month. For a $15.00 fee that goes to a charitable cause customers pick up a wine glass and enter shops in the village that fly a balloon. This signifies that the merchant has a bottle of wine inside and in most cases snacks to go with it. This is a wonderful way to wile away a Wednesday afternoon.

    Nice views of the Rocky Mountains, Pikes Peak, and golf course below. Drive down the road a little farther to see buffalo and a nice view from atop the hill of denver. If you keep following the dirt road eventually turns back into pavement and ends out at highlands ranch parkway. There are hiking trails back here as well as picnic tables.

    Climb Castle Rock

    Climb the Rock that is located in Castle Rock. This is an easy hike-a dirt path will lead you to the base of the Rock, from there you have to climb up the rock a short distance to reach the summit. There is no "defined" spot to start climbing-it is easiest on the Northeast side by the two trees. We were able to climb it with our two boys-it wasn't bad. From the top you have a great view of the city of Castle Rock, as well as Pike's Peak and the Rocky Mountain range.
