"Castlewood Canyon State Park..." Denver Off The Beaten Path Tip by AgentJX

Denver Off The Beaten Path: 47 reviews and 52 photos

Castlewood Canyon State Park which is located South of Denver on Highway 83. The Canyon was carved by Cherry Creek. Though the canyon is not the deepest and there isn't a ton of water the trail system through the canyon is extensive and many places are very photogenic. Rock Climbing and hiking are the two main activities. I find it to be a peaceful place that seems miles away from a city eventhough it is only a 30-45 minute drive from the South suburbs of Denver. Anytime of year is a great time to visit the park.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
