Just a half an hour from us is Castle Rock State Park. This is a very popular rock climbing spot due to the crazy rock formations and great access. We didn’t rock climb there this weekend, though Eric has in the past. We planned a 6 mile hike this time. It took us through a lot of different views and terrains. There was a lot of manzanita, some running creeks, a few young redwood groves, sagebrush, views over the hills toward the coast, scrambles over exposed rock and boulders, and awesome rock formations. We did see some rock climbers while we were there, though. It’s amazing that this gorgeous park is so close by.
