The Colorado River and the railroad tracks follow along the interstate. Its largely a commuter town because most people work in Glenwood Springs or farther upvalley. New Castle’s historic downtown has everything you need like a town hall, recreation department, library and post office. The Burning Mountain Park downtown hosts the farmer’s market on Thursday evenings.
The Lakota Golf Course , driving range, and clubhouse is a beautiful recreation option.
The LoVa trail organization has some suggestions about how *one day* a biker would be able to get from Glenwood Springs to New Castle.

New Castle is called the Gateway to the Wilderness because 7th St leads north to the Flattops Wilderness.
