High Line Canal Segment 3

If you’re not interested in hiking the entire High Line, buy The Best Urban Hikes: Denver, which has several hikes, out n backs, and loops that incorporate pieces of the High Line. See details about this segment, below.

This segment is a lovely out-n-back of about 4 miles. Running along the Plum Creek, the High Line Canal trail breaks between mile markers 8 and 10. Although the Canal continues, there is no place to cross Plum Creek on the trail. Thus, you’ll need to go out n back in order to complete this segment. This is a quiet segment; most people don’t do it because of its out n back nature. You’ll enjoy a quiet walk possibly seeing foxes, coyotes, deer, horses and many birds of prey.
