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.

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

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

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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
