Cornhole League

Cornhole is a lot like horseshoes. You are tossing a cornbag into a hole that is about 27 feet away. You play each game to 21 points and the best out of three wins. No previous experience is required.

Day Hikes

We offer weekly morning hikes throughout the year. Take advantage of the great trails in and around Castle Rock and Douglas County. We will also hike to spots in Conifer and Palmer Lake, just about anything within about a one hour drive. Most of these hikes are designated as easy, and are 2.5-4 miles long with not much elevation gain. Moderate hikes may have some steep hills and will be 3.5-8 miles long.

Day Trip to Bishop Castle

This castle was handcrafted and built by Mr. Bishop himself. It is an amazing site to see. The drive to Bishop is beautiful this time of year. We will provide transportation and a picnic style lunch.

Mead and Meander

Enjoy an easy bike through downtown Castle Rock for a tour of our history and culture, followed by a mead tasting at our local Honnibrook Craft Meadery. (Mead, or honey wine, is the oldest fermented beverage known to humanity). Note: Fee includes bike tour, snacks and a mead flight at Honnibrook.

Bike tour at 4 p.m., arrive at Meadery at approx. 5 p.m. Currently there is no trail access directly to Honnibrook, so we will do the bike tour in downtown, and then drive in our personal vehicles to the Meadery. Bikes are not provided. Helmets are suggested. Adults only please.
