Trail Reports

  • Tim Maddux May 24, 2017 at 9:24 amTrees were clear as of the end of April (DoD Happy Ride). A little muck at the very bottom where the short bridges are, should be dried out after the recent heat wave.
  • Joe Myers April 2, 2017 at 8:35 am2 trees reported as down, but perfect conditions as of yesterday.
  • Heidi H-P September 8, 2016 at 10:37 amThis trail was perfectly damp yesterday and so much fun!
  • Jeff Johnston June 14, 2016 at 9:43 amSo good! We rode the loop encompassing the road climb/Ollalie/O'Leary/Castle Rock/King's Castle on 6/11/16. What a way to end a big ride! Sicktastic!
 

Trail Description

Beginning at King’s Castle Trailhead, King Castle Trail #4326 travels south and east up the northern and eastern side of Castle Rock. The trail meanders uphill over several streams and through an old growth coniferous rainforest. The trail switches back in some steep sections, climbing to and crossing Forest Road 480 before heading west and ending at Castle Rock Trail #3506. — Description from the US Forest Service website.

Most people ride this trail as part of a clockwise loop with Olallie, O’Leary, Castle Rock and King Castle. That way you can climb a significant amount of road which will get you pretty high up on the loop before decending 100% singletrack. The full loop is over 30 miles and 6000+ ft elevation — so brace for a long day.
