Lace up those hiking boots and join us for the fall CAHED hike Friday, October 7th. Turkey Trot Trail and a portion of the Castle Trail make a loop and are perfect for a quick, approachable hike close to Denver. Only 3 miles round trip and there are just enough steep parts to make it feel like a workout, but not too difficult that families couldn’t enjoy it. Easy pace should complete the hike in less than 2 hours
From the Mt. Falcon East Trailhead, starts with views of Red Rocks and then the higher you climb the more of Denver you can see. And there’s some shade! As you’re getting back into Mount Falcon Park you get a bit of a break from the sun through the trees and a few glimpses of the mountains behind the park. Parking is free in the lot and dogs are allowed on leash.
