Castle Rock, Castle Pines and Monument

JUST South,

In Castle RockPhilip S. Miller Park is becoming a draw for not only Castle Rock residents but also out-of-towners. The 320-acre park boasts 7.4 miles of native-surface trail networks and a 200-step challenge hill.

The park, which is run by the city, is also home to privately operated Castle Rock Zip Line Tours - a zip line course with 10 lines stretched throughout the park's ridgelines - and the privately operated Epic Adventure Tower, which allows users to scale a 40-foot climbing wall, zip and jump from a 40-foot platform or choose to free fall from a 70-foot platform.

The addition of the 2,000-seat amphitheater last year is starting to attract bigger national acts in its second season of summer concerts. For example, multi-platinum country duo Thompson Square performed at the amphitheater on June 10, 2017.
