Forsythe Canyon Trail is a non-motorized hiking trail near Gross Reservoir. From the Forsythe Canyon Trailhead, walk downhill from the parking area. The trail begins near the gate on National Forest System Road 359.


Forsythe Canyon Trail leads off of a rocky point, following Forsythe Creek down its wooded, rocky canyon. The small creek runs noisily in spring, forming small, picturesque waterfalls and cascades finally ending at the far northwestern tip of Gross Reservoir.

Camping in this area is restricted to the designated campsites along National Forest System Road 359.

Gross Reservoir is managed by Denver Water.

Check out the Official Route.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
