  • This location is shown only to members

This is a new hike for me but I have been there for sunsets and it is one of the most beautiful places in the area. Let's do the 5.4 mile hike. The trails are undeveloped but should be no problem. We will meet at the picnic shelter at 10:00 am and start the hike at 10:15 am.Dogs welcome on leash.

Directions from Denver: I25 South to exit 188 for Castle Pines Pkwy.Keep right at the fork, follow signs for Castle Pines and merge onto Castle Pines Pkwy(2.4mi.).At the traffic circle stay straight to stay on Castle Pines Pkwy(0.2mi.) Turn right onto N Daniels Park Rd. Destination will be on the left(0.3mi.).

Directions: 3 Mile Daniel’s Park Hike – Again, start at the Shelter House and head North following the top of the bluff as it parallels the road. You can extend your hike by hiking North along the road until it intersects with Grigs Road – About 1.5 Miles. Hike back to Daniel’s Park Shelter House for a 3 Mile round trip hike.


5.4 Mile Daniel’s Park Hike – Continue the 1.5 mile hike by taking a left onto Grigs road. Cross to the Northeast side of the Grigs, then shortly after you cross, you’ll come upon a green fence and the Douglas County East/West Trail. Your can take that trail West (left) to the Grigs Road Trailhead, adding an additional 1.2 miles to your hike (5.4 Miles Round Trip).

    Unfortunately, there just isn't enough time for this hike and then making it to Boulder by 1:30 for my son's birthday! And I have cupcakes in my car to celebrate Dana's birthday, who is going on the hike! Sorry, Dana- I hope you have a Happy Birthday! I can bring the cupcakes back to your house later today if you want!

    Doug, do you have an idea of where the "ales" part will come in? Should we pick a place to get some grub after the hike?

    My first hike with the group. I have not been to Daniels park in decades so I'm not sure where we will be meeting. Can one of you seasoned group members send or post directions to the meeting spot? Thanks in advance
