High Line Canal Segment 12

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.

You’ll start to exit urban Aurora and head into its traditional rural areas on this segment. Passing Hinkley High School, some goat farms and the famous Bash Town, you’ll find a scenic and quiet stretch along the Norfolk Glen just south of Star K Ranch. Even though you cross Colfax three times on this segment, you’ll have no idea of the hustle and bustle just a 1/2 mile away as you escape into the meadows and horse ranches of rural Aurora.

What shoes do I wear on the High Line Canal Trail? These in the summer. These in the winter.
