California State Parks is seeking public input on the Castle Rock Roads and Trails Management Plan. Your input will assist in the development of a management plan for the system of roads and trails at Castle Rock State Park. The purpose of the plan is to provide specific direction for the long term construction, maintenance, and management of the roads and trails in the park.

Castle Rock is centrally located between Mid-Peninsula Regional Open Space preserves, Sanborn and Stevens Creek County Parks, and Big Basin State Park. Currently the only trail horses are allowed on is the Saratoga Toll Rd which leads to Big Basin.  The only horse staging area currently appears to be a pull out on Hwy 9. Castle Rock is a quiet park that offers sweeping views and sits at the intersection of the Skyline to the Sea and Bay Area Ridge Trails.  Note:  the Los Gatos Rod and Gun Club are adjacent to Castle Rock and the sound of gunfire is fairly persistent in the park.

This meeting will be an open house format where visitors will have the opportunity to view the latest planning information, discuss the planning ideas one-on-one with park staff, and provide written comments. Stop by anytime during the open house hours to share your ideas with park staff.

Parking at the Summit Station is limited. Shuttle service will be provided from the Saratoga Gap Parking lot at the intersection of Hwy 35 and Hwy 9, a half mile from the Summit Station.

For more information, visit the Castle Rock Road and trail Management Plan website at https://www.parks.ca.gov/Castl eRockRTMP or email us at trails@parks.ca.gov.

 California State Parks welcomes all visitors. For those with special needs, please contact Tyler Knapp at (408) 867-2952 in advance to arrange accommodations.
