Mount Falcon Park is a rewarding gateway from the plains to the mountains, offering panoramas that stretch from snowy peaks to Red Rocks Park to the Denver cityscape. A captivating history tops off the park experience, symbolized by the ruins of a broken dream.
Those seeking a hiker and equestrian-only experience enjoy 1.7-mile Turkey Trot Trail. The remaining 11 park miles are multi-use. The 2,000-foot elevation gain of the Castle Trail, a steep climb from the east, provides a vigorous workout and 14er training ground.
