High Line Canal Segment 6
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.
Although this segment crosses Broadway three times, most of the time you’ll feel like you’re on a nice trail hike. Horseshoe Park provides nice access to the Lee Gulch, which you can take northerly or southerly for several miles, or you’ll continue on past Milliken Park to the multi-functional Julia deKoevend Park. From park to park to park, you’ll barely remember you crossed Broadway three times. The Elati St trailhead is at the end of a residencial street. Please be polite and kind, keeping your voices down as you park along the street in this neighborhood.
