Castle Rock

Trail Thoughts and Musings

This is a sample of what can be seen at Castle Rock itself. Although it is the highest point in the park, it is viewless because of the forest cover. The main attraction is the rock formations themselves and the "tafoni" caves they contain. This is one of the larger caves and the upper ledge is large enough for a person to sit on. The first school teacher at Castle Rock School lived about six weeks here until a cabin was built.
