As one of the wildest landscapes in the country, there are tons of unique Colorado hikes that you’ll have a hard time comparing to anything else you’ll find in the country. Here’s a collection of a few of our favorite “weird” hikes around the state, ranging from beginner trails to much more difficult routes. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
1. Hike to Castle Ruins
Nestled on Mount Falcon near Morrison, you’ll find the remains of a castle that once stood three-stories tall. Inhabited by John Brisbane Walker in the early 1900s, the structure fell into ruin after a strike of lightning hit it in 1918. If you’re looking to hunt this one down, you’ll need to find the Mount Falcon Trail, approximately 2.3 miles long.
