The South Canyon Trail is an in-progress project that will one day extend from Glenwood Springs to New Castle. The first phase of the paved pathway was completed in 2009, running 0.7 miles along the Colorado River in West Glenwood Springs. A 1.8-mile gap sits between this segment and the second section of the trail, completed in 2011, which stretches 0.4 miles. Although adjacent to a major roadway (I-70), the trail does offer a beautiful backdrop of mountains.
The trail is part of another ongoing effort called the Lower Valley Trail (LoVa Trail) which will continue along the Colorado River, connecting New Castle, Silt, Rifle, and Parachute on a paved 47-mile route.
Near the east end of the trail in Glenwood Springs, a trailhead parking lot is available at the intersection of Devereux Road and Midland Avenue. To reach the trail from the parking lot, follow Midland Avenue across the Colorado River; the trail starts on the north bank of the river at the bridge and follows the river heading west.
