The High Line Canal Trail in this area is open sunrise to sunset. Dogs must be on leash, and watch out for free-roaming cattle alongside the canal. If you are looking for solitude, great views of Denver in the hazy distance, and a surprisingly realistic glimpse of what this area looked like around 1900, you will enjoy this casual, easy hike. The canal begins nearly 2 miles east of Waterton Canyon. A diversion dam on the South Platte River funnels water into a 600-foot-long tunnel. Water is siphoned beneath the river and carried in several flumes into the canal. The canal traverses the southeast corner of Chatfield State Park, which oversees this portion of the canal trail. The canal and the adjacent right-of-way trail (and canal maintenance road) also pass through a private ranch where there is an original, tin-roofed homesteader’s log cabin that is still in use. Since the ranch owns land on both sides of the canal, you may encounter cattle on the canal trail or see animals in the pasture along the canal. Make sure to keep your dog near you.
