“Fantastic viewpoints and stunning rock cliffs make this hike a treasure in the Grandview area.”— Hunter R
Family Friendly This would be a great option for older kids - the steep climbs may be a bit much for the little ones, but those with the strength to make the climbs will love the views!
Follow the Grandview Rim Trail east to the junction with the Grandview Walkway. Hike east along the walkway to the Main Overlook, before heading back west along the walkway to the junction with the Castle Rock Trail. Head north along the Castle Rock Trail, and be ready for a stunning experience amidst towering walls of stone. Be sure to watch your footing on this trail, as the trail surface is often uneven and can drop off steeply.
From here, follow the Castle Rock Trail until it merges with the Grandview Rim Trail, and head north to return to the Turkey Spur Rd. Parking Area.
