Castle Rock is located on the Front Range of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. It has the sunny climate and dramatic landscape that Colorado is famous for. It lies at 6,202 feet above sea level, slightly higher than Denver. It encompasses 33 square miles.The climate of Castle Rock is similar to that of Denver, but the high temperatures of summer are moderated somewhat by the higher elevation of central Douglas County. Castle Rock’s elevation ranges from around 6,000 feet in the Plum Creek Valley to around 6,500 feet both east and west of town. Denver and Colorado Springs are very similar basically due to their proximity to the foothills and their similar elevations. Elevation plays an important part in Castle Rock's climate along with the closeness to the Rocky Mountains.Castle Rock enjoys an invigorating climate that prevails over much of the central Rocky Mountain region without the extremely cold mornings of the high elevations during the winter, or the hot afternoons of the summer at the lower altitudes. Extremely warm or cold weather, although not unusual, is normally of short duration.
