By now you’ve probably realized that I love living in The Meadows. In every post I’ve mentioned the great schools, activities, neighbors, parks and more. However on top of my list, is the unique Castle Rock trails that wind through The Meadows master planned community system that winds through the community. We have access to trails that literally connect the entire neighborhood; parks, schools, pools, friends, they’re all reachable by trail.

Safe for Everyone
As a family community, I really enjoy that the Castle Rock trails in The Meadows offers a safe way for my kids to enjoy riding their bikes, or walking to parks, the pool or even school. Yes! My oldest son attends Castle Rock Middle School and walks to school; to avoid streets he walks the trail with his friends. In the summers when we visit the pool at The Grange we simply hop on the trail and we’re there in minutes. My youngest even learned to ride his bike on two wheels on the trails. As for me and my wife, I’m not going to lie and say we don’t enjoy the occasional adult beverage. The Castle Rock trails in The Meadows offer a safe (although a bit tipsy) walk home from events at The Grange like the Wine Festival or from our friends’ houses.
