This state park in central Colorado provides fun outdoor activities such as hiking and rock climbing. You can also view the remains of the Castlewood Canyon Dam here.

Castlewood Canyon State Park is the perfect spot for avid hikers who want some beautiful Colorado scenery. This park is the home to the historic Castlewood Canyon Dam that was built in the late 19th century across Cherry Creek. The dam was wrecked in 1933 and the remnants can still be seen. Trails for every skill level of hiker are available at your disposal. This state park is also an excellent location to head to for a peaceful lunchtime picnic or an adventurous day of rock climbing. Rock faces in the canyon can reach up to 60 feet for climbers to enjoy!

There is a trail called the Castlewood Canyon Falls Trail that is a doable 1-mile loop and displays a gorgeous view of the waterfall in this state park. Keep a watchful eye out for coyotes, black bears, and golden eagles within the park. Interestingly, this state park also has the highest population of turkey vultures in the entire state of Colorado! Take a day trip to the lovely Castlewood Canyon State Park for some fun outdoor Colorado recreation.
