Connecting the Canal – Segment 10, Cherry Creek to Expo Park (W&T)

September 17 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

SEGMENT 10  Cherry Creek South to Expo Park

TYPE: W&T | PACE: 2-3 mph |TERRAIN: Lots of sidewalk, small hills, dirt/pebble trail | DIFFICULTY: Moderate| DISTANCE: Approx. 5.8 miles

Walk Description: In partnership with the High Line Canal Conservancy, we will walk the entire High Line Canal, one segment at a time, covering most of the 71-mile trail. Check out our overview page here for more information on all of our walking events.

Segment 10 of 14 Miles 44-50. On this segment, we’ll continue past Cherry Creek Golf Course as we come to the major intersection of the High Line Canal and the Cherry Creek. We’ll start to understand how far the water in the Canal actually flows when we get to Fairmount Cemetery, the Canals’ second largest and furthest user. We’ll say hello to the Windsor Garden residents.

Walking Movement Leader: Robbin Mitchell has walked the entire High Line Canal twice and as a Walking Movement Leader, leads walks all over Aurora.

Meeting Location, Parking, and Planning: We will meet at the end of the segment, parking at 301 S. Lansing, Aurora, CO. Please be parked and ready to walk by 7:15 am. We will begin no later than 7:35 pm. If you are not comfortable carpooling, please make other arrangements to meet us at the start of the walk and for you to depart the walk. Alternatively, you can take a Lyft. If you use this link and you’re a new Lyft user, you get a credit toward your first ride. If you have questions about how parking/carpooling/transit will work, please contact Robbin.

Welcome Waivers: Please fill out the online “Welcome Waiver” or download, print, sign, and turn in a hard copy if this will be your first Walk2Connect walking experience in the past year.

Bring: At least 2 bottles of water, lunch, appropriate clothing for the weather, sunscreen, hat, and snacks.
