Description

The main Castle Trail can be quite crowded, and this is an excellent option that affords the same views, but on a slightly rougher surface. It wanders around well below the summit so you feel quite a bit more removed from the main park. The views to the south are excellent.

In general, it's a fun singletrack with a few rocky somewhat technical sections, but otherwise it's fairly mellow.
