The King-Castle Trail (#4326)/ Castle Rock Trail (#3506) is an 11 mile moderate to difficult collection of trails. Right from the Trailhead, the King-Castle Trail begins to climb. It winds through a two mile section of dense, old-growth Douglas fir forest, ending on the landing of an abandoned logging road, offering a view of the Three Sisters. From here you can turn back, or continue on up an old road that has been closed to vehicle traffic to tie in with the Castle Rock Trail. To continue, follow the road approximately 1/2 to Road 480. Turn right on the road to access the trail located on the left road shoulder. Follow the trail another mile to the junction with the Castle Rock Trail. You can then climb to the top of Castle Rock, about 1-1/2 miles from the King-Castle Trail junction. The remains of an old fire lookout can still be found on Castle Rock, as well as a panoramic view of the McKenzie River Valley and Cascade Peaks. Trail park Passes are required to park at all trailheads accessing this trail system.
Directions: From Springfield: Drive on Highway 126 for 2 miles to Horse Creek Road 2638. Turn left and follow this road about 2 miles to King Road (No. 2639). Take King Road approximately 3.5 miles to the trailhead.
Seasonal Access: Normally Open: Year-round (Recommended season is late Spring to late Fall.)
