A wonderful urban/neighborhood multi-use trail. Can be heavily trafficked with lots of bikes. It has lots of picnic areas. Accessibility: The trail surface is mostly paved and typically at least six feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated under 5%) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely be able to traverse this trail.

Of note: detour for trail improvement expected until August, 2021. Concrete or asphalt along the whole length perfect for a bike ride in the city. Mundane scenery of condos that line the trail. Glimpses of the distant mountains.

Wonderful neighborhood trail. Can be heavily trafficked with lots of bikes. Some areas are far enough from any roads. Lots of picnic areas.

I actually rode my mountain bike but the tread and suspension wasn't necessary. The north end and goes along the interstate at times and crosses a handful of roads but you also go through parks and along cherry creek on the southern section, which was beautiful. Good for a casual ride or walk. i started on a Saturday at 8:30am and there was low traffic. Around 9:30-10 it picked up to about moderate traffic. If you're near it, looking to get outside and move, check it out!

Did the entire 66 miles of the Highline in winter 2014 -2015. It was cold. It was icy. It was muddy. It was really a fun walk. The scenery was amazing. Something new at every turn. We even snowshoes one of the legs!

Ok if you're wanting an easy, brisk walk. With interstate right next to the trail, there was not much scenery

The Highline Trail is always a go to trail for a nice quick walk or bike ride. High traffic, but the paths are wide.

This trail is excellent for walking, running, biking and it is dog friendly! It is a very easy loop, so it makes it good for kids as well. This trail is good for any season, but especially beautiful in the fall.

Great beautiful, long, family trail. relatively flat and mostly paved. This trail can be done in sections so you don't need to kill yourself trying to complete the trail in one day.

Very nice and pretty level trail. There are a bunch of trails that cross each other so make sure you read the maps.

First to Review

Flat and wide for most part. Can be busy. Near Littelton area so easy access. Nice for kids and all levels of hikers. Goes through residential but that's OK for local hike in town. Weekends and weekdays after work are busy.
