Discover The High Line Canal With Us!
Family-Friendly Winter Walks
At 71 miles long, the High Line Canal is one of the longest continuous urban trails in the country, twisting through the most populated area of Colorado while crossing a diverse mosaic of communities and nature. Explore sections of the High Line Canal with the Conservancy this winter through a series of family-
friendly themed walks. Learn about the Canal’s history, wildlife, plant life and more! Join us for one or all four walks to enjoy the fresh winter air, meet new people and take in the sights that the High Line Canal has to offer.
Each walk is limited to 25 people and registration is required. Final logistics related to parking and gathering will be emailed to registered participants on the Wednesday before the walk.
