If you’re looking for a laid-back, quiet, and friendly place surrounded by nature to base yourself during a visit to Colorado, the town of Castle Pines in Douglas County is the perfect place for you. Although the town is located on the edge of the Great Plains and has a rural feel, it’s only 20 miles from the city center of Denver and is considered a suburb of the city.
With the relatively small population in Castle Pines, you’ll be far enough away from the crowds of the bigger city, but close enough to easily access all its attractions and services.
Castle Pines has something for everyone, including dining, golf courses, a beautiful downtown area, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and proximity to the Rocky Mountains. For visitors who love being outdoors, there are several parks with walking and biking trails within the town’s limits.
The Rueter-hess Reservoir in Castle Pines is a beautiful body of water located in a remote area near the Frank Jaegar Dam. The quietness of the area and the calm, sparkling blue waters of the reservoir draw kayakers and fishing enthusiasts.
Visitors are allowed to camp near the water’s edge, and there are a few walking trails around the area.
Outdoor lovers can find many things to do in the natural surroundings of Castlewood Canyon State Park near Franktown. Originally intended to protect the history surrounding the Castlewood Canyon Dam, today, it’s an outdoor recreational paradise.
There are several hiking trails in the park, and they range from easy to difficult. All trails are under four miles, but they link together for visitors who prefer a longer hike. Along the way, you can see the remnants of the Castlewood Dam, which burst in 1933. There are many rest stops along the Cherry Creek which flows through the park, and there are picnic areas on-site.
Other activities that can be enjoyed in the park include bird-watching, horseback riding, rock climbing, and wildlife viewing.
