Description

The highest point of South Table Mountain above Golden, Colorado, is called Castle Rock.  My wife and I did this short little hike to the summit and then had lunch with our daughter who came down from Boulder, Colorado.  Afterwards we met Matt and Charlotte Williams for a quick pint at the Mountain Toad Brewery.

There are 50 steps that lead the way to the summit.
