The Farmers' High Line Canal was originally built in the 1860s by the Arapahoe Ditch Company from Clear Creek to Van Bibber Creek in what is now Arvada.  The remaining segments to the east were built in subsequent years by the Golden City and Arapahoe Ditch Company. It is one of Westminster's signature trails as it winds from near Standley Lake east to Northglenn's EB Raines Park (10.3 mi/16.5 km) and beyond into Thornton. The trail is scenic as it meanders through a variety of parks and open space property, in many places shaded by ancient cottonwood trees. Here are the major trail segments, going from east to west.
