Guide to the High Line Canal Trail

The trail along the High Line Canal is a favorite urban getaway that meanders 71 miles across the Denver metro area. While the waterway is owned and operated by Denver Water, this National Landmark Trail is maintained by municipal recreation agencies.

The Guide offers mile-by-mile descriptions of the canal’s tranquil scenery, as well as geographical and historical facts about this urban treasure. 

The Guide is currently being updated by the High Line Canal Conservancy and a new version will be available in early 2019, but you can download sections from the 2011 edition.
