Trail of the Month

Memmen Ridge Open Space is the April 2022 trail of the month. The property provides a close escape to a forested property just minutes from Downtown Castle Rock. Its trails wind through a riparian area filled with willows and cattails, mature ponderosa pines and scenic scub oak. Walkers and mountain bikers alike can enjoy 1.9 miles of moderately difficult, soft-surface and paved trails. Parking is available just south of South Street off of Oman Road.
