Hike the Storm King Trail

2019 marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Storm King fire.

On July 2, 1994, a lightning strike sparked a fire which grew to create one of the most disastrous wildfires in Colorado history. On July 6th, twenty Hotshots from Prineville, Oregon, joined the attempt to control the fire. In the late afternoon, flames rushed uphill toward firefighters, eventually overtaking and killing fourteen.

The trail can be reached from New Castle by driving east on Colorado Route 6 (Main Street in town) past Canyon Creek to the trailhead at the termination of the road (about five miles from New Castle).

The trail follows the firefighters’ route and is considered strenuous. About a mile in there is an observation point that overlooks the scene of the fire. About a mile further on you can find the memorials on the sites where the firefighters died. More information about the trail is available at the trailhead.

Walk the C Avenue Trail

Do you know that you can walk from Castle Valley to downtown without going around Medaris Mountain?  Just take the ‘C’ Ave. trail, and cruise right on into town for dinner, shopping or the Farmer’s Market on Thursday evenings.  The public works department recently resurfaced the trail and although there is a small steep section returning to Castle Valley, it is a convenient and pleasant alternative to driving.
