This small bouldering rock sits just downhill behind Castle Rock Proper. The top of the rock is shaped like an upside down spoon, and the rock itself looking at it across the gradient looks like a spoon. Hmmm... Hence the name?
Approach time: Parking lot: 5 - 15 minutes, depending on your pace.Castle Rock proper: 10 seconds. From the Castle Rock parking lot, head uphill on the leftmost walking path 0.3 miles to Castle Rock proper. The walk wanders a bit, but the path is signed the whole way, so it's hard to miss. Once at Castle Rock proper (the big one, you can't miss it), walk around the right side of the rock to the smaller boulders slightly downhill ad left of the trail. This is the first boulder the trail will take you to if you walk downhill to the lower side of the rocks. The front face of The Spoon is just left of the trail about 5 feet.
