High Line Canal Segment 7
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.
Leaving out of the large Julia deKoevend Park, you’re first landmark is the historic wagon wheel bench followed by amazing views brought to you “by the Almighty” according to the sign. Continue along a gorgeous stretch of the trail as you step into Greenwood Village. Watch for water in the Canal–Denver Water is working on a beta test of a stormwater runoff scheme here. You’ll cross University and then arrive at Orchard Road, square in the middle of Greenwood Village.
