Canal Highlight: Visit Fairmount Cemetery

Fairmount Cemetery, located near mile 47 of the High Line Canal, is an incredible 280-acre expanse of trees, birds, wildlife, gardens, and monuments. It is a perfect location for a bike ride, stroll, or picnic. Founded in 1890, Fairmount is Denver’s second oldest cemetery and contains the graves of some of Colorado’s most prominent families and figures, including nine former Denver mayors, 19 governors and 11 U.S. Senators. The grounds contain incredible examples of period architecture by designer Reinhard Schuetze, who went on to design City, Congress and Washington Parks. Home to Colorado’s most extensive arboretum, filled with numerous Champion Trees and one of the largest collections of Heritage Roses in North America, Fairmount is a hidden gem along the Canal – go check it out!
