Mt. Falcon Park, like White Ranch Park a few miles north and Centennial Cone Park near Black Hawk, has a split personality. The park has an upper and a lower section, each with its own access and parking. Most of the trails are topside, but the truly gnarly ride is the Castle Trail that links the upper and lower portions. Novice cyclists should make the longer drive up Hwy 285 and Parmalee Gulch Rd. to the upper area, where they can hone their skills on the likes of the Meadow, Old Ute and Devil’s Elbow trails. Intermediate bikers will relish the Parmalee Trail, which is a loop - perhaps riding it once in each direction. Hard core riders will want to park in the lower lot just off County Rd. 8 south of Morrison and pedal the 2.7 miles and 1600 feet up to the top of the park on the Castle Trail. (They will, of course, also have the satisfaction of sailing back down the same way.)
