Once completed, the Hyland Trail will connect the Farmer’s High Line Canal Trail at 98th Avenue/Westminster Boulevard to the trails at Carroll Butts Park (96th Ave & Perry Street). Currently, only about half of the trail has been built.
Currently, the trail starts at the northeast corner of The Vintage at Hyland Hills apartment complex. The concrete path winds between the apartment buildings, to the northeast corner (93rd Ave & Xavier St) of Westminster Center Park. The concrete path goes west on the north side of 93rd Avenue to City Center Drive, passing along Westminster Center Park. This park is the home to the renowned Peter Pan themed playground which has been named one of the top playgrounds in the United States.
Cross to the west side of City Center Drive and go north on the shady sidewalk. The trail abuts the architecturally unique Westminster City Center Marketplace Shopping Center, which includes the prominent "Dolphins" sculpture.
Go left (west) just before crossing the Farmers’ High Line Canal. This trail segment is quite beautiful as it meanders next to this historic irrigation canal. Note the public art piece south of the trail, just before Sheridan Boulevard entitled “Folly.” You really can’t miss this faux Greek ruin, distressed by hand by Jim Sullivan, the developer of the shopping center, and his son.
At Sheridan Boulevard, go north (right) on the sidewalk to the traffic signal at City Center Drive/96th Avenue. Cross Sheridan Boulevard and then go south along the west side of Sheridan Boulevard to just before the Farmers’ High Line Canal Trail where the trail temporarily ends.
The developer of the Hyland Village project, located west of Sheridan Boulevard between 95th Avenue and 98th Avenue, has the responsibility of constructing the trail through that development. The trail will be extremely scenic as it follows the north side of the Farmers’ High Line Canal under the shade of ancient cottonwood trees within the existing Farmers’ High Line Canal city open space. At U.S. 36, the trail will veer north within a landscaped green belt and cross under 98th Avenue at an existing underpass. A trail will continue north across the Hyland Ponds Open Space to the Farmers’ High Line Canal Trail.
