Castle Rock State Park takes its name from the unusual rocky spires that jut from its canyons. Yet these pillars aren't the only things you'll want to crane your neck for. A dense forest of coastal redwood and Douglas firs fills the park, which adventurers can explore on 32 miles of trails. For the full experience, bring your gear and join Castle Rock Climbing School on a guided tour of the park's many secrets.
