If you want a refreshing cardio session, a brisk hike or trail run could be just the activity for you. With trails starting at distances of just over a mile and several pushing close to ten miles, the Castle Pines area has routes for beginners and experienced enthusiasts alike. In nearby Castle Rock, try out one of the Ridgeline Open Space loops to treat yourself to breathtaking open views of Colorado — or, connect with nature amidst Rock Park’s picturesque pine forest.
