Running at over 7500 feet can be a challenge, but the views make it all worth it! Hit the trails (or the roads) and soak it all in.

Run in the high country

Get those legs and lungs burning so good!

Castle Mountain Lodge is in the center of an Estes Park Trail Running paradise. Stunning roads wind through our high valleys and world class trail running is only steps out your cabin door. We’re often asked where some good runs are from the lodge and in the immediate area. We’ll be adding some links and blog posts soon, highlighting some of our favorite runs in the area!

For now, here is a list of some can’t miss options: Lumpy Ridge, Flattop Mountain (Hallett Peak), Granite Pass/Storm Pass Loop, North Inlet Trail and Deer Mountain.
