The Great Outdoors: Winter Activities near Castle Rock

How are those New Year’s Resolutions working out for you? In order to prevent boredom while working toward those fitness goals, consider getting out of it—outdoors that is. The great thing about living in Colorado is the ability to get outside in the snow and the sunshine, often at the same time! Shake up your winter routine by trying something new.

If you’re a resident of Terrain Castle Rock, you can hit the slopes practically in your own backyard. Some of the closest ski resorts, within a drive of just an hour or two, are:

Echo Mountain
Winter Park

How about hitting the trails instead of the slopes? Let everyone else slog through the mountain traffic while you breeze to one of several trails for walking, hiking, running, or biking. If those are your go-to activities, it would be fun to change it up and challenge yourself to try snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. These spaces are family-friendly, dog-friendly, bike-accessible, and open year-round.

Have you noticed how much we Coloradans love our dogs? Our furry friends want to enjoy the outdoors too, so why not make it worth your while and  enlist them to cart you around? Sit back, mush!, and enjoy the scenery while they burn some calories. Parks and open spaces are accessible in winter for a variety of group activities, or just to let the dogs—and the kids—get their wiggles out.

If you are still pining for the long summer days, take heart. We have an incredible number of sunny (and often warm) winter days that are perfect for keeping up your golf game.

It’s easy to enjoy the great outdoors in Castle Rock! The hard part is choosing what to do. Stay warm, stay active, and have fun.
