“Farmers Highline Canal Trail Passing through Westminster, Northglenn, and Thornton.”— Rob M.
All other sections have been well cared for and have been clean or droppings and most litter.
Some segments offer a packed gravel side trail.
The various parks along this trail act as hubs offering a number of connecting trails that can provide a change in view if any section of this trail becomes routine.
The trail has many sections offering lots of tree coverage and is a mix of Concrete and Asphalt. The route is mostly flat, but there will be a few rolling portions to keep you from getting too comfortable. Mornings generally offer the best shade as many sections have the trees to the east and open views to the west.
