We will use start and end at the Homestead trailhead, the trailhead nearest the West Entry to Castlewood Canyon State Park.  We will do a counter-clockwise loop hike of the entire length of the park, starting on the Cherry Creek Natural Trail, to the Creek Bottom Trail, then the Lake Gulch trail to the park's Visitor Center.  From the Visitor Center, we will then take the Canyon View Nature Trail to the Inner Canyon Trail, to the Rimrock Trail to get back to the Trailhead.  (NOTE:  the East Canyon Trail is closed for the season, so this hike is a little shorter than when originally posted)
