Before going out of business in 1938, the Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad stopped regularly at Boxwood Gulch Ranch to purchase eggs and milk. Old timber culverts are still being used to divert water and the railroad bed can still be seen on this historic ranch near Shawnee. With nearly three miles of the South Platte River, Boxwood and the adjacent property now serve as a destination fly-fishing resort and cattle ranch. All fishing trips at Boxwood Gulch are guided by professional licensed guides. The clubhouse is designed to give anglers every comfort that a year-round fishing resort might need.
