High Line Canal Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Despite its considerable length, I have rated this trail as "beginner," due its nonexistent elevation changes, easy running surface, and the ability to turn around at any point to return to your car.

Though located in south Denver suburbia rather than the mountains, this is such a pleasant route, with its perfectly graded path, overhanging hardwood trees, and expensive nearby homes (at the north end of the trail) that it was eminently deserving of inclusion. But be aware that there are six crossings of South Broadway, a very busy four-lane road. Please proceed carefully at these crossings. Grade: Flat, wide, and perfectly maintained."
