Trip Notes:

-This particular segment is much different than the other 13 segments, as the Trail and the Canal do not meander hand-in-hand. We’ll only see the Canal off in the distance–but attending this segment is very important to understanding the Canal’s story, and even though it’s a lot of sidewalk walking through a neighborhood, it’s a don’t-miss segment.


This program is in partnership with the High Line Canal Conservancy. For more information about the entire trail, see
