Castle Rock is located 30 miles south of Denver and 40 miles north of Colorado Springs. The town encompasses 33 square miles and sits in the East Plum Creek Valley at an elevation of 6,202 feet. The town's namesake is a large, fortress-looking rock formation near the center of town.
The town’s history is well preserved in many of the original homes, cafés and churches throughout the area. Many of these were built using the unusual rhyolite stone that originally attracted the settlers who founded the town in the mid-to-late 18th century. Prior to their arrival, the area was occupied by Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indian tribes. Today, nearly 60,0000 people call Castle Rock home.
With roots in mining and railroads, this affluent town offers an updated taste of the Old West. It boasts an historic downtown area, 265 acres of parks, 56 miles of trails, and almost 6,000 acres of open space. Castle Rock, easily accessible by Interstate 25, is home to the Outlets at Castle Rock (the largest open-air outlet center in the State) and is the seat of Douglas County.
