High Line Canal Regional Trail


Open Space Enjoyment and Social Distancing

As you anticipate an enjoyable day on Douglas County Open Space properties, please be aware that some trails, due to the location and terrain, have limited space for remaining socially distant from those other than in your immediate party. Please be aware when you encounter these circumstances, adjust accordingly, and help keep our community safe by adhering to
COVID-19 social distancing requirements.

Douglas County manages the western eight miles of the trail.  There is a disconnect in the trail before it continues along on the east side of Plum Creek, adjacent to railroad tracks, crosses Santa Fe and then winds through the NW corner of Highlands Ranch. In all, 60 miles are accessible by trail.  For more information and a map please visit the  High Line Canal website or view the High Line Canal Guide.
