High Line Canal
created by mapguy
Use the "Legend" palette (upper right) to turn on/off the various marker categories. On this map, the canal itself is highlighted (so that the trail remains unobscured), but the line colors correspond to the adjoining trail conditions:
• Purple = concrete (east of Havana)
• Blue = asphalt (west of Havana and east of Colorado Blvd.)
• Green = hard-pack gravel (south of Hampden)
• Light green = dirt (west of Santa Fe; sand and/or thorns in some areas; not ideal for biking)
• Orange = hiking possible, but biking impossible/prohibited/not recommended
• Red = inaccessible
• Light blue = alternate routes around inaccessible segments
• Pink = historic segments that have been realigned or abandoned.

About the mileposts: the "main" mile markers are placed by the High Line Canal Preservation Association. The zero point for these markers is the source of the canal in Waterton Canyon, and they run through mile 66 in Green Valley Ranch (these are brown posts, about six inches square and four feet high, slanted at the top). South Suburban Parks and Rec has its own separate set of mileposts... actually, two separate sets. The original set used a zero point at Goodson Rec. Center in DeKoevend Park, and mileage increased both to the north and to the south from there (these are short wooden markers, about 12 inches square and two feet high.) As of 2011, these markers still exist north of DeKoevend (up to mile 10.5), but it appears they've been removed south of DeKoevend (with one exception). Since then, South Suburban has put up a new series of mileposts with the zero point at the southern limit of its jurisdiction (County Line Road). These markers are on green posts, about six inches square and three feet high. They go up to mile 8.0, which is right at Goodson.
