Travel Adventure Colorado Adventures: Hiking Mount Falcon Near Denver [Photo Essay]

by lhgqz

Located in Mount Falcon Park, it’s free to park your car and enter — great for budget travelers — with a 11 miles of trails and a number of options to choose from. The easiest is the Turkey Trot (1.7 miles), while the Castle Trail (3.8 miles) gains an elevation of 2,000 feet and is the toughest.

My companion and I, whom I met on an app called High There that’s very popular in Denver for making friends, opted for the Castle Trail and also veered off to complete the Walker’s Dream, as well.

Together, these treks provided panoramic views of snowy peaks, the Denver cityscape, the vibrant Red Rocks Park, the Colorado Front Range and all the way out to Pikes Peak.
