High Line Canal Conservancy

Connecting Communities – Connecting Nature  – from the foothills to the plains

At 71 miles long, the High Line Canal is one of the longest continuous urban trails in the country, twisting through the most populated area of Colorado while crossing a diverse mosaic of communities and nature. Originally built to deliver irrigation water to fields and farms, today it serves as a unique ecological and recreational corridor connecting communities to one another and to nature. The High Line Canal Conservancy is a nonprofit representing the passionate community dedicated to protecting, preserving and enhancing the historic 71-mile Canal in partnership with the public. To support our mission, select High Line Canal Conservancy as your charity partner during race registration.
