Walker's Dream is located in the Mount Falcon Park near Morrison, Colorado. A short trail leads to a site on a craggy point where in 1911 John Walker proposed to build a 'Castle in the Clouds' hanging on the side of a cliff that was modeled after castles in Europe and present it as a gift from the people of Colorado as a summer home for the Presidents of the United States. The project however never made it past the laying of the foundation and cornerstone which can be seen at the end of a short trail.
