Dear friends new to GMRS, I live in Castle. It seems the Springs is the closet repeater is that true?

Second, If Colorado Springs is the closet repeater to Castle Rock can a 50 watt radio reach the repeater?

Thank you for helping me

It depends. The repeater antenna is probably on a high site so it covers the largest area. Your antenna must be in a spot where it would be in line-of-sight of the repeater antenna and not blocked by large buildings or trees. If the terrain between the repeater and Castle Rock is blocked by hills, mountains or whatever a 1000W radio probably wouldn't get through.
