The High Line at High Line Park in New York, New York is an easy 1.6-mile one-way trail that follows an old railroad bridge that connects W 30th St to Gansevoort St in Manhattan and has several intermediate connecting points where walkers can exit-only. As of Summer 2021 free registration is required before entering due to COVID-19 restrictions - please see the official website for how to register.

This recording begins at W 30th Street and heads south to experience the north-to-south walk along the High Line. For the most part, the High Line is a scenic way to view this section of Manhattan completely for free. There are countless benches and resting points along the trail. Closer to the southern end is an area with food and drink vendors as well. Along the side of the trail are garden beds that are full of plants, flowers, and trees that are native to New York state.

The trail is an easy walk from end-to-end; however, it's very popular and usually crowded most of the time.

Pets
Dogs are not allowed at the High Line, so please leave your furry friend(s) at home.

Parking
If parking is needed, parking can be found in various nearby parking garages or streets where applicable.

Accessibility
The entire High Line is wheelchair accessible, hence the Universal Access trail type. Please see the official website for more information.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
