This is a nice short ride of about 6 miles and 900 ft of climbing. The ride follows a small stream up among sculptured granite monoliths. At the end of the ride, I took the trail around the actual "Castle Rock" where several groups of climbers were making their way up to the top.

Here is a link to a handout I made of the Castle Rock and City of Rocks Area https://trailmaps.us/City_of_Rocks It will help visitors understand where the rides are located and where to camp. If it is your first trip follow the route carefully using a handheld gps or your phone with the trail downloaded.
