Fire at Castle Rock Unique Area


A brush fire on March 24, 2009 burned approximately 50 acres on the west face of Sugarloaf Mountain in the Castle Rock Unique Area. Firefighters brought the fire under control before it spread more widely. They suspect a discarded cigarette was the cause. The Red Trail that ascends the mountain from the west passes through the area that burned.
