“Castle Rock Trail gives you a break from obnoxious rocks and continuous climbing.”
— Vance Fast
Need to Know
Rattlesnakes bite and cactus hurt.
There's a nice bit of up then down but you might still be mad from the initial climb on Beale Loop
and you might be hoping you'll die rather than finish this loop because you keep climbing. At the end of the end of the trail, turn around and head down, this time bearing right (south) onto Badger Trail
and get ready to shred!
