Greenwood Gulch Trail Description

The Greenwood Gulch Trail is a short paved trail that runs along the path of its namesake gulch in the Denver suburb of Greenwood Village.  The trail offers residents the chance to experience a little slice of natural beauty in their backyards, as well as a means to connect to the High Line Canal Trail, which stretches for over seventy miles across the region.

The trail begins in the small, but well-manicured Palos Verde Park and heads northwest along the gulch, running under Orchard Road and following the side of a roadway surrounded by suburban homesteads. Continuing on, the trail passes by another small local park and utilizes another culvert to head under Holly Street, upon which the landscape becomes somewhat more open and scenic. This section of the trail features beautiful grassland and heads into more tree-covered terrain as the trail approaches the High Line Canal, where it connects with an unpaved segment of the longer regional trail. Several paths intersect with the Greenwood Gulch Trail along its route, allowing access to and from neighborhoods surrounding the trail. While not much of a destination trail, the Greenwood Gulch Trail is a useful asset for the suburban community, and gives those making their way down the High Line Canal Trail the option to explore a bit of Greenwood Village should they desire.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Castlewood Park around the midpoint of the trail, off of E Orchard Drive right before S Holly Street. Additional on-street parking may be available; be sure to follow any posted signs and warnings.

To reach Castlewood Park from the direction of Denver, take I-25 south towards Centennial, then take exit 198 and turn right to proceed west on E Orchard Road. Proceed about a half-mile, then turn right onto E Orchard Drive. The parking lot will be on the right.
