Castle Rock, Co., incorporated in 1881, is nestled in the heart of East Plum Creek Valley, surrounded by rocky buttes and featuring stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.
Named for the prominent rock formation that overlooks the Town, Castle Rock features several planned developments tied together by its historic downtown. First settled in the 1870s, the Town soon became a center for rhyolite mining and an important station for north-south railroad traffic.
The city's largest event is the Elephant Rock Cycling Festival, an epic, 100-mile bike tour beginning and ending in Castle Rock each summer, rivaled only by Wine Fest, an outdoor gathering in The Meadows at Historic Castle Rock. Serenaded by live music, attendees amble through the park, sampling fine wines from over 20 wineries. Wine Fest also includes mouth-watering creations from local chefs, ice sculptures and even a grape stomp.
