The Colorow Trail is a great trail for walking or biking. There are some small stretches that are a little steep, otherwise it's a very easy trail. Great for walking dogs.

Short little hike that offers amazing views overlooking New Castle and beyond. You can do this hike from anywhere in town, and end you hike with a beer and a burger at one of the restaurants downtown.
