Castle Gardens

5.00 out of 5

Castle Gardens is a unique canyon area that features fantastic dirt ridges, drainages, and formations. This trail heads up the canyon, hugging the dirt walls, offering up incredible views of these unique formations. This isn't an expansive area; instead, the dirt formations are limited just to this one canyon. This little gem tucked away in the hills surrounding Salida is very special!

    Very unique trail. Not a long hike but amazing scenery. Well worth the time when you're looking for a shorter hike to fill a few hours.
